DNA Community Youth Center believes afterschool agriculture promotes agricultural literacy among young people during out-of-school time while developing their understanding, appreciation, and application of science through a variety of hands-on agriculturally based activities.
At DNA Community Youth Center we are grounded in the belief that kids learn best by doing. Kids and teens complete hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture, and civic engagement, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids can concentrate on one focus area or they can try a variety of programs throughout their experience. Regardless of the project area, all programs include mentoring and career readiness as core elements.
