‘MapMyMaryvale’ Summer Program Offers Teens Opportunity to Build Job Skills, Connect with Community

More than two dozen teens will hit the streets of Maryvale this summer as part of a six-week community mapping program aimed at helping teens gain valuable job and self-empowerment skills while collecting data about health and social services, resources, and opportunities available to neighborhood youth. Applications to become a “youth mapper” are currently being accepted from teens ages 14 to 17 through May 7th at MapMayMaryvale.org.

April 22: Earth Day – End Plastic Pollution

On the Sunday of GYSD, we encourage everyone to join the world’s largest environmental movement and help end plastic pollution. From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet. In response, Earth Day 2018 will focus on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastics and catalyzing a significant reduction in plastic pollution.
