About this grant

This grant will enable the Cleveland Botanical Garden to conduct a five-year longitudinal evaluation of its Green Corps Urban Youth Program. The program is an urban, horticulture-based, work-study program for at-risk high school students that promotes academic success, workforce readiness, and valuable life skills. Mott support will allow the Cleveland Botanical Garden to hire an outside evaluator to assess the impact of its program on students’ academic performance in school, enrollment in post-secondary education, and/or workforce placement.
