Theme: Youth Leadership Through Environmental Protection
Description: Boston Green Academy has returned from the Dominican Republic, full of excitement and new experiences. Students worked with three local environmental organizations to test water samples from a local river, clean up the beach with community volunteers, build composting beds, and working in a seedling nursery. They also distributed backpacks to the students of a local elementary school. It was an intense bonding experience for the team, traveling to a new country for the first time for some students, witnessing severe poverty and supporting each other throughout the trip.
