The Green Team
The Green Team program hires local teenagers enrolled in the Yonkers Public School system for paid environmental jobs – for many, their first real job. The program focuses on leadership training and a variety of conservation and restoration skills.
Together with business, government, and community leaders, we are restoring the Saw Mill River, building the Yonkers Greenway, and reducing heat and flooding risks related to climate change.
There's no place quite like the Science Barge with its wind turbines whirling, solar panels getting energy from the sun, and greenhouse bursting with hydroponic plant life. Now it features cutting-edge climate change exhibits.
Groundwork Hudson Valley creates sustainable environmental change in urban neighborhoods through community-based partnerships that promote equity, youth leadership, and economic opportunity.
