Onondaga Earth Corps
Since its inception in 2004, the mission of the OEC continues to be to empower youth to be active participants in creating positive change for their communities and the environment. When the Eli MacDonald Green Team was reinvented in 2005 as the Onondaga Earth Corps (OEC), OEC was formed to:
- Help youth understand the relationship between people and the urban ecosystem
- Engage youth in hands-on community and environmental service learning projects
- Train youth for future jobs and careers in environmental fields, and
- Empower youth by developing their leadership abilities that help them analyze situations, solve problems and implement strategies to improve their communities.
These can be accomplished by bringing youth to the forefront of creating livable, sustainable communities through service, social enterprise and outreach.
