The Sweet Potato Project II -Is a prevention program that aims to prevent and/or reduce school drop-out, gang involvement, and substance use initiation for African American youth ages 12-15 by decreasing internalized oppression, hopelessness, and low collective efficacy, while increasing engagement in collective economic activity, college intentions, mentoring, and leadership development. To date more than 70 youth completed our 7 month program. Youth are engaged in leadership, self-esteem, communication, coping skills as well as agricultural business and entrepreneurship training.
