Harvesting Futures – SEA
Harvesting Futures will not be continuing with the Community Service- Gleaning Component of the program in 2016.
We want to thank all of the volunteers and community partners for contributing their compassion and service – together we did change lives, build futures and help families!
SPECIAL NOTE: For those of you who would like to continue to volunteer to glean or who have fruit trees that need to be picked INTERFAITH MINISTRIES has a gleaning program that utilizes volunteers to help pick fruit from tree donors. For more information, contact them at (209) 572-3117.
SEA 2016 – NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
The other program component of Harvesting Futures is the Summer Entrepreneurship Academy (SEA). Entrepreneurship Education helps young people discover that what they’re learning in the classroom IS relevant in the real world.
During SEA -through a variety of classroom and practical experiences – students learn about principled entrepreneurship, increase their creative and critical thinking skills as well as strengthen their collaboration and communication skills. Whether or not they decide to become an entrepreneur from this experience, they have gained valuable job skills and increased their job value as an employee by learning to “think like an owner”. Students are awarded a certificate and a $250 stipend upon completion of the program activities and assignments.
This 8 week program is open to any 9th -12th grade students in Stanislaus County. This includes incoming 9th graders and seniors who have graduated. Applications are now being accepted until May 27, 2016. Space is limited – so we encourage you to get your application packet in early!
