Be the Change Poughkeepsie!

The Summer Youth Advocacy Program will be working hard again this summer to help transform green spaces in the City of Poughkeepsie.  Having already built and installed 7 planter benches and 2 mural-topped picnic tables throughout the city, teens from the Hudson Valley and beyond will continue their work July 30-August 12.  These benches and picnic tables beautify public spaces, help revitalize Poughkeepsie and are available in parks citywide (including a dog park!) for families to enjoy.  Help these hard working teens reach their goal and give back to their community!

Donations will cover the cost of supplies including lumber, paint and flowers. Thanks for your support!
