If you were in the Merrifield street section of #Worcester
on Thursday, you probably noticed a group of young men and women wearing yellow shirts.
The group is part of a program called #ParkStewards
that started in July 2010 and is funded by #Massport
The youth ages 16 to 21 are paid to do park maintenance tasks such as trash pickup, graffiti removal and landscaping.
But most importantly the Park Stewards program acts as an alternative to the street life, keeping the youth engaged and safe during the summer months.
On Thursday the group was sprucing up Chandler Hill Park and the wooded area surrounded by the park.
