Growing Hope

Creating Safe Spaces & Nutritional Support for Ypsilanti Youth Through Agricultural Apprenticeship

Growing Hope’s Teen Leadership Program provides meaningful employment and leadership development opportunities, as well as addresses health inequities through wraparound programming by prioritizing local, often SNAP-eligible teens.
