Project Description

Franklin’s Promise Coalition is a regional community coalition that works to enhance residentsaTM quality of life in Franklin County, Florida, by improving access to services, eliminating disparities, addressing unmet needs, promoting positive youth development, and providing leadership during disasters. With this award, the project team plans to engage people from two sectors — the seafood industry and underserved youthain environmental stewardship and disaster readiness activities, with the goal of strengthening coastal resilience in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. By participating in science literacy, leadership, and training activities, the team anticipates that project participants will return to their communities better prepared to help their neighbors become more resilient to disasters and environmental change.
