Green Guides Programs for Vulnerable Youth
Green Guides, an educational, therapeutic program for autistic and other at-risk youth throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Children’s Grief Camp
This camp is open to children ages 6 to 12 who have recently experienced the loss of a loved one through illness, accident, homicide or suicide. We also serve children who are in foster care or kinship care due to neglect or abuse as well as children living with family addiction. According to the National Alliance for Grieving Children, those children who suffer a significant loss are at a greater risk for depression, suicide, substance abuse, and poverty.
Adopt a Chick Program
Have you ever wondered what it takes to raise chickens? Maybe some day you would like to have your own backyard flock? Do you want to learn but are a bit nervous? Would you like to be part of a hands-on animal husbandry educational activity that your children can do at home?
