In recent years, the Youth Green Squad has been a summer employment program for high school and university students offered by Greenest City. It offered an opportunity for young people to gain work experience and develop confidence, skills and strategies that will increase their access to rewarding and equitable employment opportunities.
The group of students organized and participated in environmental projects designed to:
• preserve and protect flora and fauna;
• preserve, protect and restore rivers; and
• build on our urban agriculture program.
