Youth First

Youth First: Summer Program

We are excited to launch our summer version of Youth First! This program includes a gardening component and also kid-friendly Dungeons and Dragons. Incorporated in both components is evidence based curriculum to help participants develop their social emotional skills.

We will also have guest speakers and presenters to help with both components: Chisago County 4-H, Master Gardeners, EMT, local police departments, and more!

Everyone is welcome to the summer locations! No need to live in the same town.
