2011 Farm Based Cultivating Youth Employment Program, WA

From GoodGrub: WHAT IS IT? Learn the roots of a successful youth development model through the lens of our farm-based employment & education program! This 3-day training institute will be a mixture of hands-on activities, teaching presentations, and group network & skill-sharing. Activities and workshops will be co-facilitated by our experienced youth and adult staff. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Our institute is designed to be useful for folks hoping to start a new program, established organizations looking to expand their youth programming, and for previous institute participants who want a deeper engagement with our youth leaders (the institute has been re-designed with this goal in mind).  Committed youth leaders are also welcome.  Expect good food and a warm, welcoming culture.
