The Youth Tree Team (YTT) works to preserve and maintain the trees KIB plants through our Community Forestry program. YTT seeks to promote professionalism, respect, personal and environmental responsibility, and teamwork in today’s high school students.
We work outdoors to water, mulch, prune, stake, and plant trees. Other duties include consistent attendance and punctuality, weeding, litter clean-up, working harmoniously with team members, follow crew leader directions, participating fully in enrichment activities, filling out work logs and other duties as assigned. Along with daily work activities, YTT participates in weekly enrichment activities including, a wilderness camping trip, learning financial management skills, networking with green-collar professionals, and rafting on the White River. All of this combined with hard work helps us connect Indy youth to the environment and each other, fostering a commitment to service and cultivating lasting friendships and a connecting to their community.
