Direct beneficiaries per year: 450
Geographic areas served: New Haven
Programs: After-school program hosted by a school or neighborhood that follows our program model, Kids Explore! Kids Do! Kids Teach! Youth learn about their local environment then develop a Community Service Action Project to address an issue they define, and a Public Education Project to teach what they learned and accomplished to others.

I've had a lot of contact with solar youth: I've planned events with them (They were hard-working & extremely productive!), as an attendee at their events, and as a community member who sees the good work they are doing with our cities youth. Solar Youth is a young organization which is still growing & still highly effective.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
attending the presentations their youth give: they've done a lot of hard work in our community!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how energetic and optimistic they are--they pitch in and get things done.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
talented, engaged, and motivated.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
infuse the next generation of New Haven with an environmental & community mind-set, giving us a strong set of leaders & doers & thinkers from our own communities.
