“Your Future Starts Now”
Lauren DuBois, our 4-H Extension Educator working in the Springfield-Holyoke region, is one of the facilitators of a new collaborative 4-H program in Springfield. “Your Future Starts Now” is a four-week program offering a positive path for a group of young men currently in detention, working with skills that can help increase their odds of landing solidly in the job market and heading towards a brighter future. It is a partnership with UMass Extension 4-H Youth Development Program, the Center for Human Development, the Department of Youth Services, and the UMass Student Bridges organization.
