Students from South Region programs in North Carolina, West Virginia, New Orleans, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., gathered in the nation’s capital in June for a Human Rights Summit organized by Jean Louis Peta Ikambana director of the AFSC-DC program.
The students participated in workshops to prepare for meetings with their representatives on Capitol Hill.
While visiting West Virginia State University, BAPS youth leadership group also had the opportunity to participate in the Junior Master Gardening workshop with WVSU Extension Office. At the training we learned how to conduct hands-on learning activities for teaching gardening knowledge and skills to people young and old alike. We will use what we learned to conduct our own trainings in the community garden this summer.
