We will present on the collaboration of Enlace Chicago and Lincoln Park Zoo to create Programa ProTEJA – a nature program in the Little Village community. Using the train the trainer model, the zoo teaches the curriculum to neighborhood leaders, who teach a group of educators, who facilitate the lessons. Both organizations will discuss their experience and the program’s impact on the community.
