Premiering “Stories from Boston’s Emerald Necklace” – The Green Team 2010

A First Look at the Second Release of a Six Part Series!

Every summer, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy employs urban youth to help with park maintenance and restoration via the Green Team Youth Program.  Through the Stories Project, I was fortunate enough to visit with a few of the Green Teamers this summer.  After spending lunch with them, chatting with them for a few hours and hearing out their personal stories, I left with a feeling of how powerful such an experience can be in a “city kid’s” life. See for yourself – watch “Mad Mike” Michael O’Sullivan, “B-Doggie” Bradley Ortiz, and Josie Bergersen-Lewis recount how their summer with the Green Team has helped them meet new people, form new friendships, expose them to exciting outdoor adventures, and build character and work ethic.
