Empowering Communities

to create change in their communities and improve their physical and social environments


Greening Neighborhoods

with activities, such as mowing and planting gardens, to revitalize neighborhoods, and reduce crime and violence


Building Busy Streets

to provide safe spaces for residents to connect and communities to thrive

If we take care of abandoned, empty lots in our cities, clean them up and create space for positive social interaction, we can help create safer and busier streets.”Marc Zimmerman, MI-YVPC Director
