Spring After-School Program Recruitment

This spring Groundwork Bridgeport is offering two paid opportunities for high school students. 

The first is a 6-week program that will provide youth with the opportunity to learn about urban forestry and participate in community service projects. One student in our fall session of the 6-week program described it as an “innovative program that enriches youth to step outside of what they know and take a different perspective on the beauty around them.” (Isaiah Oden, Bullard Havens Technical High School).

The second program will have high school students helping with Groundwork Bridgeport’s new initiative to activate and revitalize a park in the East Side of Bridgeport. It is called the Love Your City! Challenge and will provide youth with the opportunity to learn about community organizing and event promotion as they help promote the Love Your City! Challenge and get fellow high-students to submit ideas for activating and revitalizing Washington Park.
