Buena Vista Peace Park YLS Volunteer Opportunity

On April 30 and May 2, members of the Young Leaders Society and United Way staff worked with the Buena Vista Enhanced Option Elementary School Art Club to create an outdoor area dedicated to peace. The Buena Vista Peace Park is a space where students, teachers and community members can read, have a peaceful lunch, enjoy an outdoor lesson, problem solve, meditate or just enjoy the outdoors. 

Volunteers from UPS, The General Insurance, BlueCross Blue Shield of Tennessee, HCA Healthcare and Bridgestone Americas helped to pull weeds, pick up trash and worked alongside the art club to paint an outdoor mural. This project was spearheaded by a fourth-grader at Buena Vista, and most of the work on the park is led by the students.
