The Green Team is our teen employment program. Participants develop leadership, job, and relationship-building skills through urban agriculture, environmental justice, and civic engagement projects. The Green Team hires primarily low-income, recent immigrant, and youth of color from Somerville and surrounding cities. Crews work at and bike between various sites in Somerville. The summer Green Team employs 10-20 youth for 7 weeks, 20 hours per week. Each week includes work projects, issue-based workshops, team building, and job skills development.
Green Team Leaders work closely with each other and Groundwork staff to run an immersive job experience for Green Team Members over 7-8 weeks. All leaders participate in 2-3 weeks of training and meet weekly for planning and ongoing support. Being a Green Team Leader is an opportunity to grow as a youth worker, farmer, community change agent, and more. It is a significant commitment of time and energy, both physical and emotional. Past Green Team Leaders have described it as one of their most rewarding work or internship experiences. We hope you’ll join us for a fun and challenging summer!
