Youth Planting Supervisors: The New Class

Our Youth Planting Supervisor training on Saturday November, 5th was a great success!

We had 8 new Youth Planting Supervisor (YPS) trainees participating in both our classroom and field portions. In the morning our Executive Director Gail Church taught the classroom portion about how youth can effectively lead volunteers of all ages and how to plant trees to ISA specifications.

In the afternoon, our Youth Manager and President of the organization Fernando led the planting portion. The 8 trainees put theory into practice, successfully planting Stella, a Pink Trumpet Tree.

These YPS trainees did an amazing job! Alison, Victor, NK, Paloma, Kate, Noah J, Noah S, Isaac, and all the rest of us here at Tʀᴇᴇ Mᴜsᴋᴇᴛᴇᴇʀs hope that Stella will bring joy to our hometown of El Segundo.

If you are between ages 10 and 17 and want to lead volunteer events with Tʀᴇᴇ Mᴜsᴋᴇᴛᴇᴇʀs, sign up for our next YPS training on January 21st, 2017!

All trained YPS will be group leaders during our 30th Arbor Day Celebration, so join us today!
