RECYouth ‘Reel’ Education and Communication for Youth.
RECYouth is hosted at select Computer Resource Centers within Recreation Centers and offers free digital technology workshops and classes for pre–teens and teens as it exposes them to marketable multimedia tools.

Please visit the RECYouth page for more information.
Green Teen Program
The Green Teen Program engages teens to become stewards of their local parks and recreation centers. Green Teens learn how to make a “green” positive impact in their local community and encourage the public to recycle. If you are interested in being a "Green Teen," please email us at Green.Teens@parks.nyc.gov.
