The focus of this week’s show is on how the covid-19 pandemic is impacting our youth and the nonprofit organizations that provide support services to help youth through this crisis. We wanted to feature the work of Literacy for Environmental Justice because of their unique and integrated effort of supporting youth in our community through utilizing environmental education, leadership and skills training, and the incubation and placement of native plants into our urban environment.
