The Shaw EcoVillage Project trains youth to be creative leaders for sustainable change in our neighborhoods.
In the EcoDesign Corps, high school students participate in internships or fellowships where they apply their critical thinking skills to solve real-life community issues. Participants focus on the following areas: Clean Water, Air and Land; Community Pride & Identity; Health and Wellness; Equitable Development; Public Space; and Transportation.
At Chain Reaction, Youth, ages 9-19, learn how to repair and recycle used bikes so more people in Washington, D.C., can have safe, affordable, and pollution-free transportation.
Shaw EcoVillage is located at 1701 6th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001
