We’re thrilled that many of our current Teen Service Team members are planning to sign up again next year. If you or a high school student you know are making a New Year’s resolution to make a difference in your community in 2011, apply by January 10. Here’s what Melissa Avalo has to say about her experience in the program:
“One of my favorite projects during my time in the Teen Service Team was when we planted baby trees in the Bronx. It was so inspirational; the artist really had an amazing vision. This project was great for revitalizing the community, which was our goal for the month.
“It felt great planting the baby trees – it felt like we did so much to help the community. Nature is a beautiful thing, and I’m glad that we got to contribute to making it even more exquisite. I have always wanted to plant a baby tree, and now I can say I have planted several! It was an amazing experience; I would love to do it again.”
