Upcoming Workshop: Empowering Youth & Supporting Parks

For many young people in NYC, parks are an important setting for the recreation and relaxation that shapes their adolescence. Too often, youth are not involved in the work that goes on behind-the-scenes to beautify and program their parks. How can park groups effectively engage young people in this work, and enable them to grow as leaders? Come to this workshop to explore opportunities to cultivate future leaders for your park and community.

Topics include:

  • Why empowering youth benefits your group and neighborhood
  • How your group can create meaningful opportunities for youth participation
  • Success stories from other park and garden groups
