Watch Us Grow

The Leadership St. Pete® (LSP) Class of 2019 is excited to announce they have selected Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg as the beneficiary of their class project this year.

LSP Class of 2019 selected Academy Prep based on its impressive history of achievement in providing children from underprivileged backgrounds the tools, structure, and rigorous programs to overcome obstacles in order to break the cycle, advance academically and intrinsically, as well as become leaders in their community.

All funds raised will go toward an organic community garden, mobile cooking stations, and enhanced fitness areas as part of Academy Prep’s GROW, COOK, MOVE initiative.  The garden is slated to include raised garden beds, herb gardens, fruit trees, a butterfly garden, an irrigation system, sunshades, pavers, and more.  A teaching area with picnic tables and a mobile cooking center will teach students how to cook the produce they have grown and the fitness area improvements are to reinforce the importance of an active, healthy lifestyle.

The Leadership Class has branded the project “Watch Us Grow” and is presently seeking donations from individuals and businesses or in-kind contributions for products or services to complete the project.
