In the Green Light Year, young people are not only our service targets, but also our service providers. When they are in different places, they have different gains. The reason why Green Lightyear can successfully carry out many activities and projects with limited staff is that we have many volunteers behind the scenes. In the Green Light Year, we affectionately call the volunteers “spinach”. Because of spinach, Green Lightyear can become a “Popeye” and perform miracles. Volunteers will choose their favorite plant and animal names and combine them into their own natural names.
