Get ready to feel really good about young people. This video is a snapshot of Teens As Planners (TAP) a service-learning and dropout prevention programing developed and implemented by UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences. Through TAP youth have the opportunity to grow and become caring contributing members of society.

The teens in this youth development and community capacity building program are not the youth who are usually tapped to participate in efforts like this. These kids come from high poverty rural communities.

This video focuses on the first class of graduating seniors who have been participating in Teens As Planners since entering high school. Teens As Planners is funded by U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
