GROUNDWORK RICHMOND INC

Groundwork Richmond

Changing Places and Changing Lives by creating healthier, safer neighborhoods. The mission of the Groundwork USA network is to bring about the sustained regeneration, improvement and management of the physical environment by developing community-based partnerships which empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.

How do we green Richmond? Together with our youth program, the Green Team, we have several projects that involve green efforts, including planting trees in underserved communities as well as on the Richmond Greenway Bike & Pedestrian Path to beautify the city, improve air quality and increase the urban tree canopy. Groundwork Richmond (GWR) has planted 200 trees, worked with just as many youth, and employed 35 youth Green Team members this year.

 

How can YOU lend your support? One thing GWR does that is unique to this program, is that we take our youth Green Team all around the nation to assist with restoration projects and to explore our National Parks. As our youth and their families are primarily fom underserved communities, we work with partners to fund these outdoor experiences so that they are accessible to all members. You can be part of this work by supporting youth and sending them to new places; where they'll be part of outdoor exploration programs and restore the local environment!

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

GWR partners with the City of Richmond, Rosie the Riveter WWII National Homefront, Straight Talk on Prison, The Friends of the Richmond Greenway, and the National Park Service to provide youth opportunities to give back to the community and learn about the world around them. They are the next generation of leaders!
