Watch Future Farmers of America students show off their sales and marketing skills at the Big Fresno Fair. ABC30 visits kids who are using their ag skills to help a North Valley non-profit.
Children First is a year-long effort focusing on the challenges, problems and opportunities facing our youth in Central California. The program shows how the average person can make a difference in a child's life and highlights local organizations working with kids. The Children First campaign includes half-hour programs like "Kids and Agriculture," thirty-second public service announcements, and special stories on Action News. ABC30 thanks our partners below for putting Children First in the Central Valley.
