Leadership UA Partners with the PAST Foundation to bring the GIFT program to UA Youth

Growing Innovative leaders For Tomorrow (GIFT) is a summer camp program designed for Upper Arlington Youth entering grades 8-10. This program teaches leadership skills through the service learning experience of developing a “3D garden sphere.” Participants will learn to work together as they build a unique suburban garden and develop plans to market their harvest for the benefit of those in need.

Food insecurity is one problem in our society that people may not think much about. Did you know 1 in 8 Americans and 1 in 5 children in the US are food insecure? By participating in this program your youth will learn skills in teamwork, business, giving back to the community, and how to be a leader amongst their peers. They will also have an added benefit of learning more about social issues related to food and hunger.

This program is brought to you through a partnership between two non-profit organizations: Leadership UA and the PAST Foundation. Leadership UA educates, engages and inspires current and emerging leaders to take an active, effective role in our community. Established in 1988, Leadership UA provides both adult and youth programs that strengthen leadership skills, broaden understanding of local issues, and connect participants with others in the community. The PAST Foundation partners with K12 schools, post-secondary institutions, as well as industry and community partners by designing and researching new and innovative programs that deliver rigorous and relevant education.
