What is Greenagers about?
The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department and the Port of San Francisco Greenagers Program, is a youth leadership program housed in Rec and Parks’ Youth Services hub under the Volunteer Division. It offers teens, from the Southeast Side of San Francisco, a chance to play an important role in the community by improving our city’s green spaces and raising awareness. Greenagers work in various parks and open spaces throughout San Francisco, meet with various Rec and Park staff, community members and partners; create place-based projects and or projects based on issues they are interested in. Participants will meet and work with teens their own age, collaborate with other youth organizations and gain crucial skills in facilitating workshops, networking, public speaking, teamwork, environmental education, and community engagement.
