11:00 AM "Blue in Green" Jobs Rally
Mattapan Library, 1350 Blue Hill Ave.

Mayor Menino and City officials will hand out advocacy cards for people to sign and send to U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis in support of Boston’s grant application for the Blue in Green (BiG) initiative. BiG creates avenues for Bosoton’s Blue Hill residents to rise from poverty and into green jobs. The highly competitive grant, part of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Pathways Out of Poverty Grant, calls for proposals which will provide green job placements for target communities of approximately 100,000 people who traditionally face barriers to training and employment opportunities.

The Lyndon Schoolyard and Open Classroom includes new art playspace with colorful equipment for elementary students and neighborhood children, running areas and a basketball hoop for older children and an outdoor classroom complete with a miniature green roof on the storage shed, an urban meadow, sample woodland, and planting beds.
