By partnering with churches, schools, and community centers (organizations) in the Atlanta corridor and surrounding areas, Project G.R.A.P.E will use the land made available by the churches and schools involved in order to grow, teach, and serve the community. Project G.R.A.P.E. will focus on educating communities by teaching the need and importance of gardening and self-sustained living. While recruiting volunteers, Project G.R.A.P.E. will host weekend events where our participants will learn about gardening. Topics that will be discussed during these weekend events will include but are not limited to, gardening with green limited space, growing produce through re-planting and composting. These weekend events will not only help teach a new generation of people how to grow their own food, but these youth that participate will be able to spread this knowledge to people in their lives. Project G.R.A.P.E. will be able to engage new generation with bold, fun techniques while also teaching them life-long skills that will potentially end childhood hunger.

Cultivating Creativity is working with the Wayne-Westland Community School District to create a summer enrichment program for the youth of Westland. Once a week, Wednesday evenings, we will host programs to engage the minds of young people. We are scheduled to begin the first week after school ends in June and continue until school resumes in August. We plan to host art classes, science nights, music classes, and special evenings with farm animals and community heroes. This program is free and students are welcome to join us for as many nights of enrichment as they wish.

We provide youth, who are growing up without their fathers, access to a positive, male role-model through our Youth Enrichment program. Our team members are a group of passionate individuals who have embraced brokenness in their own lives, and in-turn have committed their lives to supporting the fathers, families and youth we serve with doing the same thing. We provide low-income youth growing up without fathers with life skill education and activities that allow them to explore themselves and the world outside of Dorchester. We also help fathers have equal access to their children while ensuring that state agencies treat them with dignity and respect. We will alleviate this problem for fathers and youth through our Bags for Dads Initiative. These fathers have limited socioeconomic support and limited resources. Basic personal hygiene products, and a duffel bag to keep their belongings, serves as a fundamental tool for success as an individual and as a father. One-hundred percent of men who are released from incarceration are given only a plastic bag upon release. It is not uncommon for these clients to return to an unstable living situation and a hectic day-to-day schedule. Functioning in an fast-paced, high-stress environment is more manageable if the products we are able to provide can be kept in a safe, portable location. Bags for Dads includes a duffel bag of hygiene products, therapeutic transport from prison to home, a personalized mental health treatment plan and Life Coach connection. Through greater access to mental health services we can reunited fathers with their children. This project educates youth about the effects of incarceration as well as prevent/undo stigma of fathers of color and fathers who have been incarcerated. The hands-on learning is more effective than traditional classroom learning and provides youth with a way to give back though they are unable to donate hygiene items directly.

Hello! My name is Aidana and I am an exchange student in America, SLC for a year. Recently me and my friends created club called "28 loops", where all interested people and volunteers can join us and knit woolen clothing for prematurely born children. We are planning to deliver all the clothing to the hospital of University of Utah. Premature babies have a thermoregulation disorder. Pure wool clothes give warmth and constantly massage; baby feels discomfort due-to scratchy wool and moves, not forgetting to breathe. I was part of this club back in my country - Kazakhstan. Today I want to develop it in my Utah too. All the clothing will help little babies and their parents, who experience some financial problems. Using the power of team work we can knit a lot of clothes and solve problem.
