About Us

GreenApple Corps, an AmeriCorps initiative of New York City Parks & Recreation, began in October 2004. The goal of the GreenApple Corps program is to immerse Corps members in a variety of work and learning experiences to provide them with technical skills, practical knowledge and unparalleled personal development opportunities.

GreenApple Corps members work actively in three program areas: Environmental Education, Ecological Restoration and Urban Forestry. The GreenApple Corps weaves these three strands together into a cohesive public benefit program to preserve and restore delicate natural areas, increase the street tree population citywide and turn school kids into environmentally aware citizens and stewards. Members commit to 1,700 hours of community service over a period of one year. There are GreenApple Corps teams in all of the five boroughs.
