The Green Team at Groundwork Somerville is a youth employment program focusing on urban agriculture, environmental justice, civic engagement, and job skills. The Green Team builds the leadership potential of Somerville youth to work for environmental and social justice while learning career and life skills. Green Team members work throughout the City of Somerville: at South Street Farm, school gardens, on and around the Mystic River, at the Somerville Mobile Farmers Market, and more.

Green Team Members are high school age students from Somerville and surrounding cities. The Green Team takes new members each summer, when we work 20 hours per week for 8 weeks. Summer Green Team Members can apply to continue working on the Green Team the following fall and spring, approximately 10 hours per week after school. Green Team Members are paid $11/hr.
