Ministering to youth comes with a lot of challenges and puppets can help to overcome many of them. Children enjoy having fun during puppet presentations while learning at the same time. When you create a fun and educational environment, children will respond positively.
A mini grant will provide us with the opportunity to facilitate a camp that is geared towards the current issues our youth are facing. With teen suicide rates increasing, we feel this will be a good opportunity to provide a positive outlet to address their concerns
We will hand out a list of useful and practical tips of how to avoid buying products with a lot of packaging, promote the use of reusable bags, organize recycling Art activities and create a pool of information by gathering ideas that are practical in everyday life.
It will provide food and shelter for birds during cold days. We are going to be using basic tools and wood for the house.
We have acquired a garden box and need to add liner and dirt and flower seeds. We already have three garden boxes devoted to edibles and a garden lab program. We teach over 150 kinder gardeners about growing foods from seeds, healthy dirt and beneficial garden bugs. This project would add a much needed landing pad for butterfly's in the kindergarten area and additional strengthen our program so that we can include teaching about butterfly habitat and life cycles.We would also be providing a much needed resting spot for insects traveling over our heavy paved school.
Part of the beauty of the Grow Baton Rouge YEZ Urban Gardening initiative is that it will help bring our community together and unite them. The “neighborhood sharing” portion of the program seeks to allow youth and community members who grow different things to barter with others to fulfill a full range of vegetables for their households. When people begin to help feed each other, this creates a bond and a certain trust that allows so much more!
Our project will benefit monarchs and other butterflies. We will plant a large butterfly garden with lots of milkweed and other host plants for different kinds of butterflies and pollinators as well.
We will work to save trout and connect students to their water resources
I want to educated high school kids about below ground make them realize environment problems in our country and ASEAN region.
My project will include a day trip to the Malibu Tide pools where my students would have already researched what animals and wildlife are currently there. They will have researched the endangered animals and wildlife in that area so that when they visit the Malibu site, they will have some prior knowledge. While they are there, they will explore the tide pools and then write down their observations. They will survey the environment and write descriptions of what they see in terms of human interaction with the environment. Finally, when they return to their community in South Central Los Angeles, we will explore how to implement the practices in Malibu at our local beaches to improve upon the environment.
