The Lowline is accepting applications for its Young Ambassadors Program. The organization hoping to build a public green space in an abandoned trolley station below Delancey Street started the program last year to engage local teens in the community engagement process. It’s now time to choose the sophomore class.
The Lowline will be picking 12 high school students interested in careers in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Young ambassadors help facilitate community workshops, lead educational sessions for younger kids and take part in community events. A $1,000 stipend is offered to participants.
Applications are being accepted through Sept. 18. You can find more information here.
The Lowline has won preliminary approval from the city, and is now working on raising millions of dollars for the ambitious project and continuing community engagement and design efforts.
