On October 17, NYC Parks is re-launching the Jr. Litter League, a citywide competition and youth service program. Youth teams can sign up to help care for local parks, learn about the importance of the environment, and win fun prizes!
Through the Jr. Litter League, teams of up to 15 students and three adult leaders volunteer to pick up litter and leaves in a local park throughout the five boroughs from October 17 – December 15. Team leaders will take part in an orientation with NYC Parks staff before the start of the program, and will also be able to check their team’s standings against other groups across the city mid-way through the competition. Prizes will be awarded to winning teams at the elementary, middle, and high school levels by borough, and every Jr. Litter Leaguer receives a gift for joining!*
NYC Parks will provide all necessary supplies.* Visit the Jr. Litter League webpage and register today!
