The Problem

Project Freshman FIRST( Freshman- Integrating- Resources-Service-Learning- Together) is led by grade 9 students in an intergenerational community service environmental stewardship initiative engaging community volunteers, retired teachers and friends and neighbors. Following a survey of community needs, environmental stewardship evidenced needs in cleaning a nearby creek, home to endangered species and open space parks and playgrounds to foster outdoor enjoyment and exercise.

Our Plan

FIRST students have identified the dire need to conserve and protect our natural resources before they disappear. Restoring natural habitats, refurbishing open-space and playground areas and cleaning local veterans cemeteries are integral and respectful and necessary to better our community and our environment for today and tomorrow
