The Green Team

The Green Team is a six week summer job program sponsored by the City of Monroe.

Mayor Jamie Mayo brought the idea to Monroe after attending an Environmental Protection Agency Advisory Board meeting in Washington, D.C. during the spring of 2009. At the request of the Mayor, the Monroe City Council approves the annual allocation of funds for this project.

The Green Team will consist of 15 to 25 young men and women who focus on green jobs such as litter prevention, beautification, recycling, graffiti abatement, and cigarette litter prevention. The Green Team will also be involved in other projects that consist of free education workshops, tree planting, flower planting, landscape maintenance, and E-recycling.
