The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) establishes a community partnership between University of Idaho Extension- 4-H Youth Development Program and the Aslan Christian Academy.
The University of Idaho Extension, 4-H Youth Development Program’s mission is to provide positive youth development and life skills development through engaging hands-on activities using the experiential learning model and other research-based methods. 4-H helps kids belong, grow in independence, give back to their community, and master new skills and knowledge.
Hands on experience with hydroponic greenhouse crops, the use of Aslan’s commercial kitchen for culinary training in baking and dietary meal planning, and raising chickens for eggs are some programs envisioned in the partnership. Nunhems USA, the vegetable seed business of Bayer CropScience, has donated a large portion of vegetable seeds to Aslan to help start the program. Treasure Valley Seed company has indicated a similar seed donation of different type crops.
