Our Summer 2018 Teen Staff

Support a new generation of leaders

The Art Garden's Teen Job Hub employs 25 Binghampton youth who partner with adult staff to sustain our programs and spaces. Your support makes it possible for these amazing teens to experience the thrill of a first job, grow as leaders in a loving, collaborative environment, and serve as models of hope and motivation for younger Art Garden members.

Cedric, Dantonio, and Derrick

Dantonio specializes in bike maintenance at the CAG Bike Shop and helps lead Greenline bike rides twice a week. Derrick works in the Vegetable Garden where he and the team provide healthy eating options for neighborhood families and sell vegetables in the neighborhood and to local restaurants. Cedric is part of the Tuesday Art Garden team supporting our original art program on one of the busiest days of our week.

Dantonio, Derrick, and Cedric’s commitment and leadership are the best example of what the Art Garden does — empowering the children of Binghampton to create their best futures.
