Sankofa Youth

Sankofa Youth is a youth-led enrichment program that provides opportunities for youth to learn, lead and grow. Youth are assisted by an adult program coordinator and two adult youth leaders.

Sankofa Youth activities focus on civic education, character development, life-skills enrichment and development of leadership skills. Youth members learn about the history and heritage of African-Americans in the N.C. Sandhills, participate in community service activities and serve as SFHA ambassadors and volunteers.

Through a wide range of activities, youth participants develop strengths in and gain benefit from the following areas:

Character development
Building leadership skills
Confidence and empowerment
Civic engagement
Community service
Health and wellness
Mastering community resources
Goal-setting and planning for the future

The main goal of this fundraiser is raise funds for our transportation to and from a local farm in Spring Lake, NC. We plan to farm and build a raised garden on our own Farmer's Market Site. The produce that we grow will be sold to the community by the youth!

Please help us in our efforts!
