Under One Sky is the Trail Blazers year-round program, inspiring urban youth to understand that everything is connected to the environment. This program expands the notion of environment to include everywhere we live, work and play. Through opportunities in, out of and after school, students are empowered to become active participants in their local environment - because we all live under one sky!

Under One Sky After School Program


Trail Blazers is proud to offer hands-on after school programming to elementary and middle school students throughout New York City to promote critical thinking and a sense of wonder for the world around us. This program is offered 1-2 days a week at your school, centered on urban environmental issues and a community environmental project.

Throughout the program we emphasize:

  • Helping students connect-- to themselves, their peers, adults in their lives and their communities
  • Caring for the local environment-- your environment, your community
  • Finding real-world solutions to local problems
  • Building leadership skills and character
