Solar Youth, Inc. provides opportunities for young people to develop a positive sense of self and connection and commitment to others through programs that incorporate environmental exploration, leadership and community service.

Description:
SOLAR YOUTH responds to the needs of urban youths as we takes advantage of the resources in the city. We Use ecology as a tool to teach youths about connections,ie. how they are connected to the environment, to their communities, and to each other. Through community service youths learn and practice the skills of stewardship. Through a conscious focus on positive youth development, students learn skills of critical-thinking, problem-solving and leadership. Beyond the benefits to youth, our programs highlight critical issues that face the urban environment, bring a diversity of voices into the struggle for its protection, build in youth a greater appreciation for the environment, an increase an ethic of stewardship in the wider community.

History:
SOLAR YOUTH, INC. was founded in 2000 by Joanne Sciulli and Heather Gilbert along with an active Youth Advisory Group (YAG). The YAG has participated in all steps involved in creating the organization and its programs. Currently two YAG members sit on the Board of Directors. In 2002 we collaborated with the community learning centers in public housing developments and a school to run our after-school Neighborhood Steward Teams.
