When Tucson teens A.J. West, Clarissa Savel and Fiona van Haren were awarded $1,000 for a video they created about urban farming, they quickly agreed on how to spend it.
No, they didn’t run to the nearest mall.
This trio, who are part of a local program called the 4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors, are instead offering free health and wellness training at the Tucson Village Farm for other teens, ages 12-18.
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 28 at the University of Arizona Pima County Cooperative Extension, 4210 N. Campbell Ave.
As part of their upcoming wellness training, the teens plan to focus on all aspects of healthy living including mental health, physical health, self-care, and building healthy communities.
Local teens interested in participating should register for the program. More information about that can be found here.
