The Urban Green League offers our youth the opportunity to experience nature in a structured learning environment.

The Urban League of Philadelphia has partnered with Riverbend Environmental Center over the past 8 years to bring the Urban Green League program to the local community.

This program focuses on 1st and 2nd graders to encourage their interests in the exploring the outdoors. Moreover, the program is designed to increase the environmental awareness of Philadelphia inner city youth; empower their responsibility in protecting the environment; and expose them to the outdoors.

For the 2018-19 school year, we are excited to continue our partnerships with both Cook-Wissahickon Elementary School and Steel Elementary School.

Every child deserves to experience the beauty of the natural world.
