Project Growl Special Event

Evento Especial del Projecto GROWL

Project GROWL  is a recipient of CYFAR (Children, Youth and Families At Risk) which is funded through NIFA (National Institute of Food and Agriculture). Project GROWL’s goals are to enable youth to acquire work-based life skills to equip them for a knowledge-based and creative economy, to expose youth to an accurate, deeper understanding of the food, fiber, agricultural and natural resource systems affecting their urban communities, and finally to empower youth to visualize themselves as contributing members of society and to leverage their knowledge, skills, and abilities to influence other individuals, groups, and organizations.

Project GROWL represents a collaborative effort by UGA Cooperative Extension to impact teens’ lives through opportunities to master content in agricultural and natural resources, family and consumer sciences, and 4-H mission mandates with an overarching goal of empowering teens to become influencers within their communities.

Project GROWL participants are identified and recruited by the CYFAR Coordinator and community partners in the Riverdale (Clayton County) and East Point (Fulton County) communities. Participants must attend 7th grade in either community in order to be considered. For more information, please contact Nykita Howell, CYFAR Coordinator at (404)762-4077 or nbhowell@uga.edu.
