2017 Summer Recap Of the Code Green Program
As we transition into the fall and winter programming seasons we wanted to take some time to highlight a LIT Summer for making our communities healthier. The Green Scheme successfully implemented its Code Green Program in six different locations across DC, Maryland and VA. The Green Scheme was able to service 1301 youth in our Code Green summer camps and extended day programs.
This summer The Green Scheme partnered with DPR (Department of Parks and Recs) to implement a summer camp and tour at the Lederer Garden which is located in Ward 7 on Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE Washington DC. The garden has over 40 raised beds, commercial green house, composting stations, fruit trees, rain barrels and a bee hive on site. We are able to service 300 youth and 60 consolers from varies DPR camps.
We received a great opportunity to partner with DOEE (Department Of Energy and Environment) to provide technical assistances and training to their summer youth works and staff. We implemented a four part social impact and entrepreneur based workshops to 20 teens and their staff in the month of July at McKinley Tech High School in NE Washington DC.
This summer we partnered with Lee Montessori Public Charter School to do an environmental summer camp three days a week. Lee is located in the Brookland community across from Catholic University in NE Washington DC. We are happy to say we serviced 540 youth and provided technical assistance and staff training as well six environmentally focused field trips throughout the summer.
Finally The Green Scheme has a garden location in PG county partnering with the Glenarden Woods Community this summer to build and implement our Code Green Program. 36 youth from the local community were able to participate in the program this summer. Glenarden Woods is located off MLK Ave across from Glenarden Baptist Church.
