Description

Who We Are

Green Generations Inc. is an innovative, community-focused education nonprofit that empowers children, parents, and educators with vital and transformative life skills in the South Bronx. We utilize holistic and practical teaching approaches to ensure children are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy choices, understand and reach their full potential, and build happy, compassionate, and meaningful lives for themselves and their community.

What We Do

We offer after-school workshops to 2nd and 3rd graders in the South Bronx as well as a variety of other programs across New York City. We have designed an innovative, five-tiered curriculum to teach children self-awareness, nutritional empowerment, environmental stewardship, ethical and compassionate leadership, and celebration. Our approach is holistic and whole-child centered. Our intent is to help children understand their contributing roles in the world, as we believe they can affect social change and make a difference no matter their age.

We also understand the vital role adults play in children's development, and offer specialized, supportive workshops for parents and educators. These workshops focus on a range of topics including: how to praise children effectively, establish kind authority strategies, parent and teach with more joy, provide stress-relieving exercises, and more.

Our long-term vision is to develop an eco-friendly community center and school to support residents of Mott Haven and the surrounding area while also expanding the reach and scope of our workshops.
