Growing Futures: How Students Find the “Why” Behind the Wine in Lodi Schools

“Many times students aren’t aware of the opportunities that are available in their own backyard,” said Dr. Rafael Ceja, director of education for Lodi Unified. “What we really wanted to do with the program was explore career opportunities in our local community.”

“We think hands-on experiences are key to getting our kids excited about learning,” said Ceja.

It’s all thanks to the Growing Futures initiative; a partnership between Lodi Unified, Delta College, the Lodi Winegrape Commission and the nonprofit San Joaquin A+.
