Location: Chicago, IL Opportunities: “In partnership with After School Matters, our Youth Corps teen job training program engages and employs over 200 youth annually across our farms, which serve as a safe spaces for teens to explore their interests, work collectively, share their talents, learn from one another, and develop skills that they can apply to school, work, and life. During their time spent on our farms, our Youth Corps ambassadors expand their understanding of many aspects of urban farming, community food system, and business development through a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) curriculum. The Youth Corps program aims to serve as both a job training experience and to encourage leadership development. It’s our goal that teens graduate with a comprehensive understanding of sustainable food system development and the ability to connect and communicate how the skills they’ve gained at the farm translate to any career path they may follow.” Website: https://urbangrowerscollective.org/youth-corps/
