Leadership in Ethnically Diverse Communities project takes root in St. Peter
Giving youth the power to bring to life their own ideas, Grass and Roots Outdoors is a new program in St. Peter that grew out of an idea sparked during the community’s time in the Leadership in Ethnically Diverse Communities program.
“There are lots of kids who don’t have access to things, so how do we find ways to connect kids who are not connected to other activities,” said Hiscock-Austin. “Maybe they’re not into sports; maybe they don’t typically sign up for camps, because cost is an issue or transportation is an issue. The focus for both Grass and Roots and New Foundations at this point is ‘How do we increase access and inclusion?’”
