If you are or know a low income young person between the age of 14 and 16 in need of a summer job, please pass along the application for the YouthGROW program. All youth who apply are guaranteed an interview and candidates who are hired will have the opportunity to work on one of our two urban farms in Bell Hill and Main South!
But maybe you've graduated high school? We want your applications as well! We have a budget for a couple of paid positions but are especially looking for students interested in volunteering as interns (hopefully for credit.) Our youth hiring committee is planning to interview candidates in late April and the position would entail around 5-7 hours of planning time with the youth during May and June and then participating in our summer program during 6 weeks in July and August for around 25 hours a week. Interns will have the opportunity to co-lead a project with a Youth Leader like planning an awesome neighborhood block party, visit farms across New England like Nuestros Raices and Seeds of Solidarity through our field trips, and get to work with some of the coolest young people in Worcester. We will also feed you during our summer program! Email me your application by April 10th if you are interested.
