2020 Greenwich Youth Conservation Program

For 40 years, our town parks and beaches have benefitted tremendously from the hard work of 14- and 15-year-olds who choose to spend part of their summer with the GYCP.

Each year, well over 150 young teens apply for our “earn and learn” program because it gives them an opportunity to gain valuable job skills and make an impact in their community.
