After school programs are an excellent opportunity to support motivated youth to take a leadership role in their community and their education.  The ELF Program currently offers one after school program.

Community Garden Project

Starting in February 2013, The ELF program will be partnering with the Santa Barbara Housing Authority to offer an after school program for youth and their families to learn about sustainability within the context of a community garden.  Nearly every age group can use a garden to learn about science from bug collecting for young kids to soil chemistry for teens.   Adults can learn job readiness skills such as landscaping and professional gardening.
