Albany, GA, September 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The non-profit organization Hip Hop Grows Up, Inc. sponsors college students from Albany State University and Darton State College to canvass a local neighborhood to learn the health needs of children and adults in the Radium Gardens neighborhood. The purpose of this neighborhood canvassing is to promote healthy living and physical fitness among families within the Radium gardens subdivision. It is the goal of Hip Hop Grows Up, Inc. to create community gardens within the Radium Gardens subdivision, and it is believed that canvassing the neighborhood is a start.
Hip Hop Grows Up, Inc. has a curriculum titled the iPositive Movement and Healthy Living and Physical Fitness are large components of this instruction. As the college volunteers from ASU and DSC are surveying the Radium Gardens families, the students will further build skills in other parts of the Hip Hop Grows Up iPositive Curriculum: self-esteem, vocabulary, critical-thinking, and leadership building skills. The research gathered from the families will prepare Hip Hop Grows Up, Inc. to help create the community gardens within the neighborhood.
Hip Hop Grows Up, Incorporated is a non-profit organization poised to close the gaps in education between our youth, parents/guardians, educators, and other positive mentors in the community, the village. HHGU helps preserve our children’s innocence, in a fun and innovative way – focusing on critical-thinking, problem-solving, enhancing vocabulary, self-esteem, and leadership skills. Ultimately, HHGU’s vision is to recreate the village it takes to raise our children.
