*************


REEP develops and supports youth leadership in the Roxbury neighborhood through a school-based environmental justice curriculum, an after-school youth leadership program, and youth-led organizing projects. "Environmental Justice" gives a name to the oppression they see in their community every day, and REEP gives them the tools & skills they need to challenge it. 

Their own website declares, "We teach teens about environmental justice. Your environment is your surroundings; often what surrounds you in your community sucks. We work with teens, adults and city officials to make our neighborhoods better for everyone."
