"I realized that there is more to my surroundings than just buildings."- Jayla Dowdy, Green Team Youth
As a member of the City of Cincinnati's Youth 2 Work Program and by partnering with Easter Seals TriState; Groundwork provides supervision, training, employment, and a Green Jobs site for youth and young adults each summer. We hope to expand this program year-round. To date, Groundwork has engaged over fifty Green Team youth who travel to Mill Creek work sites on refurbished bicycles and maintain the Mill Creek Trail, gardens, and restoration sites as one of their primary responsibilities.
Check out the Green Team's experiences on the trail and participating in a service-learning trip to Wayne National Forest on their Facebook albums.
