This summer, for the second year, I'm leading the Waterfront Ambassadors program with the Trustees of Reservations. The Waterfront Ambassadors is a youth employment program based in East Boston and has a mission to engage teens on waterfront issues in and around their neighborhoods, including environmental justice, climate resiliency and public access. You can learn more about the program here.
This summer we're reaching out to young people in East Boston to find out what activities they'd like to do at the future Piers Park III, the Trustees' newest waterfront park. We need everyone's feedback to make sure the park reflects the needs and wants of the local community so if you're from East Boston, or have a connection to the area, please consider filling out our survey! There's a version for youth and adults, and it's available in Spanish and English.
