If you've ever driven down Mystic Ave., you've seen the results of this fantastic summer employment program for teens aged 14-19, that combines hands-on environmental education with art. The mural project brings together an international community of youth living in Somerville. Mural participants have come from places such as El Salvador, Nigeria, Haiti, Vietnam, Brazil and the Ukraine. The youth often bring music and food from their country of origin to share while working on the mural.
