Community Action projects are an integral part of ITE
ITE expresses its commitment to community through urban and rural community action projects, and leadership programs such as Community Action Toolkit Program, Youth Engaged Stewardship, EcoMonitoring Corps, and the Youth Action Corps. We advocate for natural play spaces integrated throughout the community as integral to the creative development and wellness of our kids and the overall aesthetic and ecological health of our community.
Youth are involved in all aspects of Community Action projects from research, planning and design to implementation and maintenance. Projects become part of the community as a resource for exploration, discovery and learning.
