Pre-School Programs

The Healthy Youth Program is a wellness and healthy lifestyle program for children (preschool through grade 12) and their families. Many of our programs are based on vegetable gardens, linking a healthy and active lifestyle with a healthy and sustainable environment and providing fresh produce for families in need.

We engage children and families through participatory education, hands-on activities, and interactive dialogue. All of our programs are youth and family centered, tailored to their unique needs, and build on the strengths of the participating youth and families for long-term success.

Full and partial scholarships are available for all programs. Applications and more information can be found HERE.

For a taste of our programs, please check out our PROGRAM PHOTOS!

Looking for ways to help with these and other programs? We have many opportunities to GET INVOLVED!
