SARE Youth Grants

The North Central SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education) offers grants to youth. The purpose of these grants is to provide opportunities for youth in the Missouri, age 8-18, to learn more about Sustainable Agriculture. Youth will design and carry out a Sustainable Agriculture project of their own and report their results to the public. Guidance from an adult sponsor and parents is encouraged but some independence on the youth part is expected.

Whatever project you choose is up to you and should show your own interests about Sustainable Agriculture. The grants are up to $250 per project.

Outreach with what the youth learn with your original project is required. Youth may write an article, have a field day demonstration, put up a web page, make a video, show a poster, give a speech or otherwise show the public what the youth did, what the youth learned and why it is important. After the project is finished a short final report is submitted.

For more information on the SARE Youth Grants contact the Jefferson Institute at 573-449-3518.
