How We Do This

If you are a 4-H or FFA youth or volunteer, this website and its resources and contacts can be a tool for new knowledge, skills, and inspiration to engage in today’s conversation about tomorrow.

The SBAR Team has developed this portion of the website because we believe you might be willing to support our mission of building a sustainable bio-economy for arid regions, through your research, leadership, and STEM/agricultural advocacy projects in 4-H and FFA. Take the next step!

We encourage you to look through the SBAR site, learn more about guar and guayule, and think about how you can incorporate the SBAR initiatives in your public speaking topics, in your Agri-science projects, or in other ways your young, creative mind dreams up!
