YES Summer Program 

The Youth Energy Squad Summer Program aims to grow youth leadership in sustainability and justice by engaging high school students in developing, planning and completing youth-driven community greening projects that improve neighborhood environments within Detroit.

New For

2017

This year, we have invited community organizations, nonprofits and other partners to propose potential sustainability opportunities or issues in their neighborhoods. For projects selected, community partners have been matched with a group of students that will co-create a project to address their community’s sustainability needs. The development of the projects includes perspectives from the community partner, community members and student service members and are overseen by AmeriCorps Green School Coordinators from the Youth Energy Squad.
