Did you know that only 55% of Bronx public high school seniors graduated in 2014 per nysed.gov? As a volunteer board member at Van Cortlandt Park Conservancy (VCPC), I'm hoping to make a difference in the Bronx through GREEN JOBS FOR YOUTH!! Please help me raise the needed funds to keep this program thriving!! THANK YOU!

Green Jobs for Youth (GJ4Y) is a Van Cortlandt Park Conservancy year-long paid internship program for Bronx high school teens with a 3.0 GPA or better Under a dedicated environmental educator, GJ4Y interns make Van Cortlandt Park a better place for visitors, including dogwalkers, birds and wildlife. Since 2012, 60 interns have completed the program. The summer portion of the internship is $1,800 per Intern. We want to fund 3 Interns and have a collective goal of $5,400.00 . We ask that you join our efforts individually and as teams by reaching out to members in your communities for their financial support at $10 or more by April 28th.
