Park Stewards 2014

Thank you to all the hard working young people and to our partners for making the Park Stewards program a success again for 2014!

 

 

Neighborhood jobs for neighborhood youth. Teaching the habits of paid work. Building a legacy of caring for public space.
Description

The Worcester Park Stewards program hires youth from low income communities for the summer to help maintain and improve Worcester’s public parks. The program is a great way to learn about our parks and neighborhoods, good work ethic and civic engagement. We are currently working with Newton Hill, Crompton Park, Castle Park, Crystal Park, Green Hill and Coes Pond.
