Project: Grow Green Ambassadors Project
Client: New York Public Library
The New York Public Library has been an essential provider of free books, information, ideas, and education for all New Yorkers for more than 100 years. Founded in 1895, NYPL is the nation’s largest public library system, featuring a unique combination of 88 neighborhood branches and four scholarly research centers, bringing together an extraordinary richness of resources and opportunities available to all.
New York Public Library contracted BDAC to design and implement a re-invigorated approach to service learning for 16-25 year-old students participating in the Young Adult Literacy Project. The result was the design of Grow Green, a cultural organizing initiative that trains the next generation of "green" ambassadors in food justice, environmental equity, and cultural strategy.
