The Young Urban Farmers
Athens Land Trust is in need of funds to continue paying the students' salaries. Currently, each Young Urban Farmer is paid a wage of $7.50/hour. We feel that continuing to offer this “real-world” education is invaluable to the students. Not only does a wage put money in the students' pockets and help them to support their families, but - more importantly - it builds self-confidence as the students begin to learn first-hand the privileges and the responsibilities that come along with earning a living.
The funds earned through this campaign will provide immediate support, helping to maintain the work-study structure of the YUF program. While these funds will not provide a long-term solution, they will support the program until we can secure a more permanent source of funding for the students' wages. All donations made to this campaign are tax-deductible.
Please join us in being a part of a program that helps young people to find their way. There is not a more important task at-hand - after all, these students are our future.
Please continue to share this campaign so that we can reach our goal.
