Horticulture Program The Friends fills a critical role in helping the Trust for Governors Island (TGI) meet the rigorous demands of caring for the Islands new and historic landscapes. Together the two organizations work to balance stewardship and sustainability. The Friends supplements TGIs limited budget for horticulture by funding gardeners, tools, plants and equipment, and by leveraging volunteers to ensure the Islands green spaces remain in world-class condition. At the same time, The Friends works to document and communicate the performance of the new landscapes over time, serving as a model for sustainable and resilient building practices. To meet these goals, in 2016, The Friends funded a full-time horticulture volunteer coordinator and four horticulture fellows, and increased the total volunteer hours spent on landscape tasks from 5,800 to 7,000.Harbor Internship ProgramThe Harbor Internship Program (HIP) provides a formative paid professional experience to underserved youth, focused on civic engagement and career development. In 2016, HIP hired and trained 12 students from the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, a permanent, year-round Governors Island tenant and the only public high school in New York focused on marine science and technology. Through their internships, students welcomed more than 50,000 visitors to the Island, offering information, historical context and ecological education. Beyond the salary they earned, the program gave students a broader perspective on careers in the nonprofit and public sectors through exchanges and workshops with other cultural and open space organizations. The curriculum emphasized skill development in public speaking, customer service and problem solving, while building on students existing knowledge of Governors Island and the New York Harbor. In their evaluation surveys, interns reported increased confidence levels, improved collaborative skills, better preparedness for work and college, and a deeper sense of civic commitment to the City and the Island.Family Fun DayThe Friends organizes free public events, including the annual opening weekend Family Fun Day, which attracted 15,000 visitors to the Island in 2016 for a day of exciting live theater and music performances, outdoor games, arts and crafts, and education.

Volunteering: In 2015, Governors Island Alliance launched new volunteer programs for both horticulture and team activities, augmenting its existing individual volunteer positions in visitor services and public event support. In partnership with the Trust for Governors Island, the new gardening-focused projects, as well as the capacity to work with large corporate and nonprofit groups, exponentially increased volunteer activity on the Island.Team volunteer groups also funded the purchase of tools, supplies and plants to help maintain Governors Island's new and historic landscapes.1,240 volunteers contributed a total of 6,980 hours of labor during the 2015 season.Public Outreach, Education & Engagement:GIA's Visitor Services Team served approximately 7% (34,000) of the Island's 450,000 visitors in 2015. In addition to welcoming visitors, answering questions, and providing general information, this team also distributed 56,000 map brochures during the public season. 19 high school students from the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School on Governors Island participated in GIA's paid Harbor Internship Program - the largest intern class to date. In addition to providing Visitor Services and information to the general public, the students benefited from job training, professional development and exposure to non-profit and park career paths through field trips and workshops. In post-internship evaluations, students reported improved confidence levels and public speaking skills, in addition to an increased sense of responsibility.GIA conducted a statistically significant visitor survey to record and analyze information about visitors zip codes, whether they were visiting the Island for the first time, and specific information on group types and activities. Key findings in the final report indicated that 72% of all visitors are New York City residents, with Brooklyn visitors comprising the largest population segment, slightly higher than Manhattan visitors. GIA increased its newsletter distribution list to over 10,000 subscribers, and grew its social media following to over 2,500 users across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.Free Public Programs:GIA's 11th Annual Family Festival featured six live theater and musical performances, arts and crafts, and educational activities offered by 14 different organizations. The free festival was held on opening weekend and was attended by over 6,000 children and adults. The Family Festival received free promotional coverage in many online and print press outlets including the New York Times and Time Out NY. The 2nd Annual Governors Island Kite Festival was held in August in partnership with Brooklyn ARTery. This free event attracted 1,400 visitors for a showcase of 7 programming organizations, a collection of giant show kites, live music, and kite building, decorating, and flying workshops. In September, GIA collaborated with TGI to produce a free public preview of The Hills, the newest addition to the Governors Island's spectacular park, scheduled for completion in 2016. Over the two-day event, 2,000 visitors toured the construction site and climbed to the top of Outlook Hill.AdvocacyGIA worked with grassroots advocacy groups, community members, and local officials to advocate for a ban on sightseeing helicopter flights from the Downtown Heliport. The noise and pollution caused by these non-essential tours have a deleterious effect on public enjoyment of Governors Island and other waterfront areas. In the framework of the advocacy campaign, GIA funded a noise study, rallied on the steps of City Hall, testified at a public hearing in support of new legislation, and organized an online Twitter storm."
