Youth Leadership Intensive

On Monday, September 21st, we were honored to celebrate the first session of our inaugural Youth Leadership Intensive with the Green School in Williamsburg.

Funded with a generous grant from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation’s Environmental Justice Community Impact Grant Program, the YLI is a 50-hour intensive for 10 high school students. It is designed to share information about environmental issues facing local communities, inspire students to imagine ways to address environmental issues you care about, and provide tools for leaders-in-training to take leadership action on those issues.

We’re super excited to get to work with the 10 students in the weeks to come, ad are looking forward to their guest blogs as well. Next up: mapping NYC trees with Trees Count!
