Teen Urban Tree Corps (TUTC)
Last summer a group of 9 teens led the way in mapping out Boston's urban forest. This year we're expanding the program to 17 motivated Boston teens!.
This summer's program is a first step towards building a Youth Tree Corps to plant, steward, and advocate for a healthy urban forest in Boston.
Our teen driven approach will also help to:
Develop a more informed and engaged constituency.
Increase public awareness of the benefits of a healthy urban forest.
Build a coalition and community around trees at the neighborhood level.
