Groundwork Milwaukee Green Team: Ages 14-17


The GWM Green Team is a service-learning program that engages 14 to 17 year olds living in GWM's target communities. The program's dual goals are to prepare youth for a lifetime of environmental leadership and to develop community capacity to improve the physical environment. Green Team members are immersed in GWM's practical projects and act as GWM employees, neighborhood stewards, and mentors to elementary-aged youth in their neighborhood.

“Groundwork Milwaukee has been a leader in providing young people with jobs that empower them to become engaged citizens and community builders."

— Antoine Carter, Program Director

The mission of Groundwork Milwaukee is to bring about the sustained regeneration, improvement and management of the physical environment by developing community-based partnerships that empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.
