On Wednesday November 29, participants in our Young Adult Conservation Corps celebrated their graduation from the program with a lunch and presentation at Tree Trust. Paullie, Malik, Ivette, Javier, Johnny, and Tyereh were given awards by their Crew Leaders for their unique contributions to the crew, and participants said a few words about their time in the program.
Paullie, who completed his third and final YACC cohort this year, said a few words: "I liked that Tree Trust transformed my life, just like the logo says. It made me a better person than I was in March, a better employee. I will take the skills I learned forward."
Tree Trust is proud of all that these YACC participants have accomplished, and we look forward to seeing the progress made by those who are continuing on in the program.
