Here are a few 2019 highlights:
- Vibrant & Experienced Community Leader, YaVonne Boyd, joined as Executive Director.
- In 2019, Earth Conservation Corps, the DC Affiliate for National Wildlife Federation, kicked off the award-winning Eco-Schools program in Washington, DC. This program model is used all over the world bringing conservation awareness and action to local schools all done on the student level.
- In the fall of 2020, we are planning to bring this program to youth who would greatly benefit from this opportunity, National Guard Capital Guardian Youth ChalleNGe Academy. The Youth Challenge academy is a residential program that works with 16-18 year-old high school dropouts, providing workforce development and service learning experiences that will give these young people the tools needed to succeed as productive citizens.
