SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

A new 4-H program in Sylvester is working to get more kids involved in their own community.

Southern Sky Center for Diverse Arts and Culture hosted a recruitment session for their new 4-H Jump off STEAAM program. 

The program's name stands for science, technology, engineering, art, agriculture and math. 

Five youth ambassadors just returned from Washington D.C. where they're working on a healthy-living youth initiative. 

One of the program's goals is to address rural health issues. 

"Right now we're moving forward and trying to engage more youth in the community to be part of the program and also be part of the solution," said Adult Volunteer Youth Leader Eda Garcia said. "So for the future, that's what we have going on right now."

The group is working with the city of Sylvester to get a greenhouse to have agricultural programs year round.
