A group of twelve ‘at-risk’ middle-school students employed through the San Francisco Conservation Corps Youth in Action Program will examine from a personal and collective viewpoint issues of community, heritage, identity and environment. Students will participate in a variety of activities including field trips to community organizations, documentary projects and on-site collaborative art activities. Boulevard Of Dreams in an investigation and celebration of dreams and aspiration
The Youth in Action program of the San Francisco Conservation Corps employs middle-school students from the Mission, Potero Hill and Bayview/ Hunter’s Point neighborhoods of San Francisco in a program that integrates work experience with environmental education through community beautification and recycling projects. Projects provide a challenging combination of work projects and education, focusing on community improvement, environmental cleanup and urban renewal.
