Providence Center Teen Leaders Attend 4-H Youth Summit

Providence Center is a sponsored ministry of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.

This spring, our teen leaders attended the National 4-H Youth Summit in Washington, D.C., a conference that allowed them to explore topics and careers related to STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math. They attended workshops and lectures there to inspire them to foster positive change in their neighborhoods.

Now, the teens are working to create a pollinator garden at our community garden at 4th and Huntingdon Streets. This project aims to beautify the community and provide a sanctuary for vital pollinators. To ensure the success of this project, students from PennExtension’s Master Gardener program worked with our teens to design the garden.

This collaboration is a testament to the power of working together to create meaningful change in our community. As the project gains momentum, we’re excited for our first planting day, June 1st! This milestone marks the end of months of preparation and hard work on behalf of our teens and the start of creating a greener, more sustainable future in Fairhill.
