"Working on this mural has been an inspirational experience, and can only be the beginning of positive change in the community"

- Urantia Ramirez, Youth Participant

Who are Groundswell Youth? Why do young people from around New York City join Groundswell's after-school and summer programs, and what keeps bringing them back to continue creating works of public around the city?

In this new feature on our website we focus on the youth in our programs. Young people talk about what drew them to Groundswell initially, the skills that they've developed, and what they hope to go on to do in the future.
