WHAT IS THE YOUNG FUTURISTS PROJECT?
The Young Futurists Project (YFP) is a youth-driven, innovation hub impacting the culture of health through technology, social solutions, and creativity. Using the S.T.E.A.M. approach, YFP seeks to provide training to students in workforce development as well as foundational and personal skills. YFP primarily serves youth ages 13-18 during afterschool and ages 8-18 during our summer camp and supports youth technologists, creative innovators, and advocates with skills to address the current and future emerging issues. The program was launched in January 2020.
Registration is FREE for JPS Students and SNAP/ TANF recipients. A $100 monthly fee is required for all other students. Limited slots are available. The program is now open for enrollment and applications can be submitted here. For more information, email [email protected].
The Young Futurists Project is funded by the Mississippi Department of Human Services, Hardin, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations.
