STEAM Leadership Academy: A LeadershipTraining program that extends opportunity for young scholars to develop leadership and recreation skills while giving program support to mentors and educational staff.
Our strategic program put young leaders in the driver’s seat and give them the power to plan, implement, and witness the full impact of a program designed for them by them. We know that our young leaders bring new strategies, skills, and initiatives to solve the communities challenging issues.
Our Junior Ambassadors help keep leadership programmers feeling successful while working cooperatively with staff and other volunteers. Collectively we provide a well structured, safe and fun environment. We model enthusiastic and desirable behavior, assist with behavior management, and offer assistance freely wherever needed.
Striving to positively impact our young people, we partner with community partners and advocacy groups that empowers youth while helping them to become positive role models and leaders in their community.
Educational efforts will target both businesses and residents. To achieve this goal, A.C.T.I.O.N. leaders will coordinate such efforts with the Community Outreach personnel and related government agencies to execute and promote education efforts.
Georgia Agriteen Network is a youth-driven initiative operated by local high school students to meet the need for more minority youth to explore Agri-business and career opportunities that are open to new generation of Ag entrepreneurs.
Agriteens introduces high schools to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math-driven career paths in agriculture, agribusiness, agritourism, agritech, and natural resources management.
Our grassroots efforts are aimed at reducing the negative impact of poverty, eliminating the economic stresses that create food deserts, and increasing the employable STEAM skills, financial literacy and business revenues of farmers with the sole purpose of integrating our farm lands into our purpose-built communities model.
Most urban gardens are targeted toward lower grades and fewer examples exist on high school programs, despite evidence that it can benefit this age group.
Literature reviews report a need for more rigorous quantitative evaluation of garden based programs connecting programmatic activities to positive outcomes that can be used to maximize benefits and inform policy. School gardens tend to be concentrated in high-resource schools and more needs to be done to bring these experiences to underserved schools.
Our Agriculture initiative introduces traditional growing practices, green energy alternatives and sustainable practices in order to help citizens understand how local, state and national lawmakers plays a part in creating, regulating and enforcing rules that govern agriculture, food distribution & natural resources by industry.
Even though Georgia is a leader in Agriculture, students tend to shy away from agriculture. One of the common misconceptions about this field is that it is limited to farming and animal husbandry only. Our challenge has been to find engaging and innovative ways to show youth and young adults that agriculture provides a wide range of career and business opportunities for minority youth, next generation farmers and young entrepreneurs
Through our signature Ag Fairs, NWIAA Prosperity Programs and community involvement growth strategies (CIGS), information is given to students who have never heard of career or entrepreneurial opportunities within this sector.
