Youth Leadership Program (School Year)

Employment opportunities for youth in the Emerald Necklace parks

The Youth Leadership Program (YLP) is a program for youth ages 15—18 that focuses on developing leadership skills. It also enhances communication skills and deepens life science and park maintenance knowledge. YLP is geared toward youth who have already completed Green Team or a comparable youth employment program in the environmental field.

Thank You to our Program Partners!
