4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors

Tucson Village Farm offers middle and high school students the opportunity to be trained as leaders within the community in promoting healthy lifestyle choices, such as proper nutrition, physical activity, food budgeting and healthy food preparation. Participating students are required to complete 12 hours of training where they will learn fun, hands-on nutrition lessons, simple and healthy food preparation, and gain valuable leadership skills. These students will then be given opportunities to put their skills to use by spreading these healthy living messages throughout Southern Arizona. The idea is that youth can be encouraged to be instigators of change toward more healthy habits within their communities. This program is offered in Pima, Santa Cruz, Cochise and Pinal Counties.
