On May 27, 2018, Youth in Action hosted the Tree for Me event at CultureLink Children & Youth Centre. Tree for Me is a community-powered backyard tree planting program where Toronto residents and non-profit organizations were able to receive free native trees in order to improve the tree canopy in Toronto for future generations. This event was in support of the Every Tree Counts campaign in partnership with Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation. This connection was made possible by the Bike Host program.
There were 7 volunteers from SEAP and Youth in Action who worked hard to make this event possible in assisting Rachel Bennett our Youth in Action Program Worker and Alasis Mohamed our SEAP Program Worker with community outreach and facilitating workshops. On the day of the event there were 75 trees given away and Councillor Sarah Doucette was able to come visit and support the youth in our community
