The Green Lion
Be part of this special school, where youth from troubled backgrounds have a second chance to progress as productive members of the community. The school’s rehabilitative approach gives the kids space to develop and make good life decisions. All of these school’s students are male between 12 to 18 years of age and come from a range of backgrounds. They each have a unique story to share and they have gone through a lot. Projects that this community initiative offers allow students to experiment with responsibility and express their true character, the main project being the plant nursery where you will be helping out. Don’t worry though, you won’t need any experience in horticulture, as you will learn all you need to know at the school. The school also has a library, computer lab, carpentry workshop, music room, an arts room, and a petting zoo with a variety of animals which you can also interact with. These students need mentoring and positive influences in their lives. During this program, you will not only learn a couple of gardening secrets, but you will also open the students to informal interactions which will give them a chance to express themselves. Because of the school?s philosophy of creating a space for students to make their own decisions, the interaction you have with the students will develop naturally while you are there.
