ACTION alumni meeting

Adam and Sharon, thanks for inviting me to the 4th annual ACTION Family & Alumni Holiday Dinner! It was a great overview of everything that high-school students in ACTION at the Point CDC, The South Bronx, are doing. Students have conducted short presentations about each of their numerous projects such as the Green Way, Urban Farming, restoration on the North Brother Island, and Go Green. While I am already familiar with some of these projects, I was surprised to learn that ACTION goes beyond the local environment: sometimes this education program sends students to experience the environment in other cities, countries, and even Antarctica. I look forward to conducting narrative inquiry with some of the most experienced ACTION participants next year to learn more in-depth about their experience in environmental restoration projects and how it influences students’ sense of place and social capital.
