Youth for Restoration

Youth for Restoration is a youth-lead group located in the Hudson Valley, New York. We look to preserve and restore local historic sites.

Last year our mission was to clean up the Apoguague Friends' Meeting Burial Ground, at the corner of Noble Hill Dr. and Pleasant Ridge Rd. We worked on removing shrubbery, rotten trees, rebuilding the rock wall, and standing up the fallen headstones.

Our purpose in life is to preserve local historic sites to acknowledge the accomplishments of our town through donations from the community and local businesses. These businesses provided refreshments for the volunteers.

We are a group of 6 individuals who come together to restore local historic sites in the Hudson Valley area. We each are responsible for certain aspects of our current task (such as materials, fundraising, etc.) We plan and organize the projects, depending on volunteers to join us for the actual completion of the projects. We think that these projects are a great way for the community to come together and commemorate our area's history.
