“When Sandy came to me with the vision of Fertile Ground, I knew I would love to join something like this from the start."
~ Nicole Tomlison (Charter Mentor /Former BOD Member)
Founded in September 2003, Fertile Ground, NEYW, Inc. began its program with ten fifth grade girls and eight committed teachers serving as mentors in partnership with Nesbit Elementary in Gwinnett County, Georgia. With the focus of developing future leaders at an early age, bi-monthly meetings were held in the media center with topics ranging from developing positive self-esteem and goal setting to effective money management.
