All of our gratitude to Lidia Bastianich and her team for a wonderful fundraiser.
Lidia’s hosted a benefit dinner to assist BoysGrow in securing land for a permanent location to continue its work supporting youth by teaching business skills and promoting entrepreneurship.
BoysGrow is a not-for-profit agency providing mentoring, entrepreneurship skills, and positive male role-models for inner-city boys ages 12-15. BoysGrow literally broke ground in the Spring of 2010 and is a year round farming and business program supporting the youth by providing valuable personal and business tools while cultivating and selling our products.
The program is volunteer supported, staff guided, but youth driven. The Program strives, with staff guidance and direction, for the boys to take pride in their crops and products to ensure the success of the program. This will in return create self-pride, identity, and belonging, not only for the youth to the concept of the BoysGrow name but to himself and his fellow workers and the positive and successful environment they have created.
The mission of BoysGrow is to take an inner-city boy and open his eyes to the possibilities and realities of entrepreneurship. BoysGrow uses Farming and Agriculture as the vehicle to instill pride, identity, discipline, and an understanding of the Business World
