Our Youth for Environmental Action (YEA!) program recruits young people who want to stay involved with the KGPB programs during the summer. We are also able to recruit community service workers to stay with us after they have finished their hours, whether it is from the court or from a national honor society, student council or some other organization. Youth from first grade through high school can participate in this program.
