Description

Groundwork Dallas was founded in 2005 as a nonprofit organization and is one of twenty one (2) approved Local Trusts in the Groundwork USA network. Groundwork USA is an initiative of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Brownfields Program and the National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program.

Groundwork has a youth program called the Green summer program. The program is an interactive educational program that empowers students and teachers to help the environment through educational and environmental projects along with recreational activities to connect students to the outdoors in a positive manner.

The Groundwork Dallas Green Team is a group of the best and brightest high school students in Dallas. Our mission is to help residents reclaim and revitalize communities with great need through on-the-ground initiatives that provide hope and empowerment. We focus on neighborhoods with crumbling parks, abandoned houses, vacant lots, and polluted waterways, further blighted by crime, health, and employment issues.
