Jamila Banks, Youth Earth Club
Jamila has spent over15 years working with “at risk youth” and their families in the areas of education and social work. Her project is a 20-week youth environmental training program, specifically establishing a Youth Earth Club with two inner-city elementary schools in the Los Angeles area. The club encourages students to promote green initiatives, and to build awareness, responsibility and accountability for our planet. Pollination Project funds will be used for gardening equipment and supplies.
