Thanks to the support of the GO community, youth in Clarksdale, Mississippi were able to participate arts education and vocational training programs. The mission of Griot Arts is to create a community of students who are actively engaged in making their community a better place through the arts and community service. Funds helped support their core arts program as well as the launch of new vocational training program. As a result of their GO grant, more students were able to participate and receive good care and mentorship. The vocational training program focused on a vegetable farm, and the participants and mentors were able to make a connection and sell products at local farmers’ market.
