YAP Best Practices Shared Nationally

The Tutorial Center's Executive Director Jack Glade shows of his own YAP skills...I had the opportunity to share The Tutorial Center’s YAP model and experience nationally by giving workshop on YAP for 25 adult education specialists at the COABE national conference on adult basic education, held in New Orleans.

As more people hear about our YAP and its successes, I’m getting more and more questions from other education centers and schools about starting up their own agricultural or gardening project. The COABE national conference provided a way to talk with people from around the country about how programs like YAP change the way individuals and communities think about personal development, food and community.

Thanks to our many committed YAP instructors, volunteers, crews, and supporters. I was proud to share the YAP story and highlight its positive results.

Thank you so much, Tutorial Center, for having made this opportunity available. To anyone else for whom this chance comes along, take it. You will not regret it.”
