Defensores Youth Corps
We have heard from the community! The needs are that we need to provide more opportunities for the youth to get involved, experience more of our natural world, and practically speaking, earn community service hours.
Almost all of our engagements provide opportunities for our area youth (middle school and up) to join us, have fun, learn about nature, have great experiences, and earn service hours.
Additionally, we offer a paid Green Jobs program for youths. For 12 weeks participants will receive job training in various "green" jobs focusing on trees and tree planting, while also learning about community engagement, sharing information on nature and the environment. Join our squad.
