We love having youth in the station! This week we had 7 young people and leaders from The Youth Conservation Corp of the Trustees (YCC). Abigail (Crew Supervisor, American University, 19, West Roxbury), Gabriela (Crew Supervisor, UMASS Boston, 22), Julliet (15), Celine (16), Carla (16), Amanda (17), and Sandra (17) are all from East Boston and are part of the YCC’s East Boston Coastal Resilience Crew. They talked to What’s Up Eastie about climate change, environmental stewardship, climate justice, and what it means to get involved in their community.
If you’re SuccessLink approved but don’t have a summer job yet, reach out to Gabriela and Abigail ASAP: Email Gabriela at firstname.lastname@example.org
