Project GROWL 4-H Club
Project GROWL has concluded as of August 2019. For information on 4-H programs in the College Park and East Point areas, please contact Von Baker at email@example.com.
Project GROWL was 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 were 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 represented 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.
