The You Grow Girl Program empowers young women to become active stewards of themselves, their communities, and the environment by developing skills in leadership, communication, collaboration, and self confidence in the context of responsible and sustainable agriculture.
The You Grow Girl Program includes leadership and skill building opportunities in addition to a new garden at Camp Hayward. Located outside the Hayward office, the raised bed garden will provide veggies for the Camp Hayward salad bar as well as programming opportunities for cabins and interest group activities throughout the summer. With limited spots, this program has a brief application process.
We are kicking off the You Grow Girl Program with a weekend retreat April 24-26, 2015. The weekend will include leadership sessions, installation of garden beds, morning wellness activities, healthy eating and food preparation workshops, and group bonding. We will offer an optional follow up activity during our Volunteer Day on May 9, 2015.
Dates: April 24-26, 2015
Price: $100 includes all meals and transportation from/to Emilson YMCA, Hanover.
