Harlem Youth Gardeners could be back for Summer 2021…but we need our youth to vote for its return! #jobsforteens #yougotthis
The Harlem Historic Parks (HHP) launched a youth program last summer that was a hit with our local Harlem youth. We received over 120 applications and ended up hiring 22 teens and 2 coordinators. The response was so positive and unveiled to us the demand by youth for these opportunities to LEARN AND EARN in the park.
In an effort to continue this initiative, the HHP has applied for NYC Civic Engagement Commission’s “It’s Our Money” which is a process for youth to decide how funds are spent in their community – $100,000 to be exact. We have an opportunity to gain up to $20,000 to help continue Harlem Youth Gardeners for Summer 2021.
Hooray! It’s time to vote! The “It’s Our Money” ballot will be activated starting tomorrow Monday, February 8th and will remain active until February 22nd.
–>Youth (ages 9 – 24) must register first on www.participate.nyc.gov – youth will not be able to vote without registering first (LINK IN BIO)
–> Youth ages 9-12 will need to have their parent or guardians create an account for them and assist them with voting given privacy concerns and protections.
We will continue to keep you up to date as we get ready to launch, so please stay tuned!
Let’s do this, TOGETHER!
