A group of ten year 11 students were tasked to set up and run a café for the week, a project they took on willingly.

‘I am very impressed on how this group of young people have tackled this challenge head on,’ says ACFA Southern Queensland Director, Michael Hetherington.

‘It’s really important that the community gets behind events like these to encourage the next generation to get involved and understand how a business works’.

The ACFA was pleased to learn that the group called their café ‘Next Gen’ after the ACFA-run program which encourages and supports young people into the sugar industry.
