  • When talk turns to statistics about our city s youth it usually centers on incarceration and crime rates particularly in troubled neighborhoods of Wards 6 7 and 8 near the Anacostia River As we grow this web site we ll be citing statistics that paint an altogether more promising portrait of the D C youth who ve participated in our program For example 95 percent of our 2005 2006 program graduates went on to college or careers We ll also let you in on some other eye opening facts For every dollar invested in a Corps member the city receives more than 3 worth of environmental restoration services along the endangered Anacostia River Watershed a prime habitat for some of our region s most rare and revered creatures like the bald eagle In the 22 years we have been at this Corps members have led over one million hours of hands on restoration of the Anacostia and helped inspire a movement Since its founding in 1989 Earth Conservation Corps once the only program of its kind in the nation is now being replicated around the world and has encouraged more than 24 000 city youth and adults to become environmental educators and leaders Our youth honed environmental preservation skills through such hands on initiatives as the raptor conservation partnership with the Us Fish and Wildlife Service and the American Eagle Foundation management training with experts from the U S Environmental Protection Agency shad restoration with dc fisheries Last year Corps members delivered their conservation lessons to more than 2 820 younger children and their families through our ongoing in school afterschool and summer programming partnership with the D C Public Schools We look forward in the year ahead to continuing these and other successful efforts We ll also seek out new supporters and partners who can help us protect and restore the environment The surging redevelopment of the Anacostia Waterfront which we helped inspire is in full swing We look to work with our corporate foundation and government partners to broaden youth career training workforce development through the River of Hope Launched in 2006 we see it gaining momentum provide 3 000 young people with life social and job skills through environmental education and restoration Our vision is that every young person in the Corps and throughout Wards 6 7 and 8 District not only survives but thrives Thank you for your commitment to transform young lives through environmental action You are helping build a legacy that will reverberate for generations to come Sincerely Bob Nixon Co Chairman Our Team Board of Directors John Bridgeland Co Chair Robert Nixon Co Chair Dylan Glenn Secretary Dan Tangherlini Treasurer Sarah Guinan Nixon Dr Sylvia Earle LeVar Burton Advisory Board Ethel Kennedy John McCarthy Lashauntya Moore Jim Edwards Robert F Kennedy Jr Brenda Richardson Jackie Massey Staff Brenda Richardson Managing Director Rodney Stotts Director of Wings over America Nicholas Schirladi Program Manager Kellie Bolinder Grants Manager Americorps Environmental Service Volunteer Leaders Mandy Nativi
