To ensure the long-term vitality and health of the Rockaway waterfront, RWA works with the local community to raise their environmental consciousness and establish a sense of ownership of the public waterfront thereby creating opportunities for them to play a role in the determining the future of their neighborhoods.
We believe that the public waterfront is for all people to enjoy. We believe people from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds deserve the same right to use, access and enjoy their waterfront. We believe that by partnering with local residents and youth in our efforts to revitalize and protect the waterfront will have a long-lasting effect on the waterfront and the Greater Rockaway community.
We hope that through our programs and community outreach the Rockaway community will be empowered to establish important initiatives that will create a diverse, vibrant and active waterfront; created by the community for the community.
In 2007, Jadel participated in her first RWA program as a 7th grader at PS43. Through high school she has been a valuable contributor to our ongoing efforts and today she continues to work with us as a practicing intern while she attends college. Hear more about Jadel's story.
