Breaking To Build Back ...Brick By Brick
Spring Break 2012 

Green School partnered this year with Habitat for Humanity and The Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission (Prince George's County Department of Parks and Recreation) and Xtreme teens for this year's spring break vacation.   
Students took part in a volunteer service learning program where youth were able to work to build up homes within the Prince George's County community. This project was design to show youth the importance of helping others, being good stewards and being environmentally conscious.  In addition, they learn invaluable lessons about helping your neighbor, assisting others who are in need and getting involved. 

Students worked for 5 days on various beautification projects at the homes of four Prince George's County residents. During this year's project students also took part in a solar assessment and media production program.
