Did you know that currently in the U.S., over 4 million youth are unemployed?
Confined to an urban environment, at-risk youth are especially vulnerable to poverty and unemployment. Lacking the necessary academic and interpersonal skills, these youth struggle to find long-term employment and overcome the factors that restrict them to their set path. Our latest partner, CommunityGrows is working to help these at-risk youth overcome the boundaries that prevent them from achieving their true potential.
Through their innovative educational program, BEETs, CommunityGrows uses urban gardening and nature projects to train these at-risk youth and help cultivate the interpersonal skills and confidence they need to succeed.
