Services & Opportunities

Watts Rising has a multitude of ways you can get involved. From joining our Youth Climate Group to volunteering for a tree care event, you can be part of creating a healthier Watts! Check out some opportunities by exploring the pages below.

Watts Youth Climate group

Watts Rising has opportunities for youth to cultivate their leadership potential and engage their peers and families around climate action and the built environment. We have community garden meet ups to not only beautify the Watts community but also learn how to garden, compost, and gather fresh organic fruits and veggies!

The TerraWatts robotics club is in the process of creating a solar panel irrigation system for the Heart of Watts community garden off 103rd. Helping the Eco Club within Jordan High School learn more about green jobs, garner community service hours while beautifying their school and community, and building their college and work resumes. We also have kid and eco friendly activities at community events to keep your little ones engaged while you socialize and learn about resources we and our partners offer! We are always looking and listening to ideas from the youth and community of Watts on how the younger generation want to engage and help combat climate disruption within their community.

Please email with comments, questions, concerns, or ideas! More to come Spring 2023.
