Each year, Friends of the High Line creates and produces over 400 free, innovative experiences for people of all ages. From stargazing to Latin dance; from meditation to a storytelling pie party; from gentleman's boxing to our kid-focused Wild Wednesdays, Friends of the High Line welcomes our neighbors, and all New Yorkers, to come out and join us for fun and learning in our park in the sky.
High Line Teens programs offer paid job opportunities for local youth ages 14 to 19 in event production, horticulture, children's programming, and community engagement. In the past three years, we've expanded to include three different teen programs – Green Corps, Teen Arts Council, and Youth Corps.
Educational programming has long been an important part of Friends of the High Line, beginning in 2001 withpartnerships with the New York City Laboratory School for Collaborative Studies and the Hudson Guild, a Chelsea community center that serves lower-income residents. Education programs serve 3,200 students and chaperones each year through guided field trips, after-school programs, teaching artist residencies, and school partnerships.
