A non-profit affordable housing developer that spent $33 million for “green upgrades” to an Alexandria, Va., apartment complex, also administers a “Teens Going Green” program at the site where, among other things, teens take the green agenda “back home,” and are “policing their parents” to be more environmentally conscious.

At an event to unveil the “green upgrades” — $8.2 million of which was provided through a federal tax credit program — Mark James, the senior real estate development officer for the Community Preservation and Development Corporation (CPDC), explained the “Teens Going Green” program.
