Youth Advocacy League
As part of its efforts to raise awareness about the difficulties veterans face upon returning home, Seeds of Hope, a project of the Youth Advocacy League, creates community gardens to help support veterans and their families. Youth groups such as Girl Scouts work with veterans to plant and maintain the gardens. This partnership helps show appreciation for veterans while also providing powerful learning experiences for children and teens. The organization’s efforts caught the attention of TribLive after the group was honored in the Jefferson Awards for Public Service Youth Service Challenge.
