Hello! We Are
AGSPOSURE is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization with the goal of using agriculture in a way that addresses many of the issues that affect socially disadvantaged communities. Agriculture is the backbone of our world and by incorporating it into more of these communities we can bring a fresh approach to combating many of the issues and challenges these communities face. There are a multitude of problems faced by socially disadvantaged (SDA) people on a daily basis. According to the United States Department of Agriculture socially disadvantaged people is a group whose members have been subject to racial or ethnic prejudice because of their identity as members of a group without regard to their individual qualities. We have three initiatives to support these communities: exposure, education, and empowerment. We educate communities by sharing information on community programs, agriculture opportunities available to encourage professional and personal development.
Some of the key focus areas are as follows: community programs, fiscal knowledge, career, health & nutrition, and agriculture. We expose potential opportunities to socially disadvantaged communities by striving to use agriculture in a way that strengthens communities and illuminates potential opportunities that may otherwise go unnoticed. By educating and exposing the community to more information we believe this will provide them with the tools needed to create new opportunities for themselves. This growth will create a sense of community empowerment and pride which will pave the way for future generations..
