Caleb Berrios is a member of the Kingston YMCA Farm Project and one of the highschoolers who was on the Youth Design Team selected to research and design a memorial at the Pine Street African Burial Ground. After the final design from the Youth Design Team was presented to the public on March 10th, 2020, Caleb stayed on as the Youth Steward of the Burial Ground. Over the following summer he worked collaboratively with Harambee, Kingston Land Trust, and the YMCA Farm Project to clean and install garden beds in a neighboring lot to the Burial Ground. Caleb is a self-taught musician in his free time, a Kingston, NY native, and an active member in his community. He is looking forward to continuing his education as a college freshman.
