Apply now! Green Team Youth Leadership Program

We are excited to start the application process for the Green Team Youth Leadership Program! We are looking for 15 youth, ages 14 to 18, who actively participate in school and/or community activities, have a desire to help make the world a better place, and live or attend school in the Chollas Creek Watershed (http://groundworksandiego.org/the-creek). Participants must be available Tuesday – Thursday from 8 AM to 2 PM, from June 27 to August 5th, 2016. This opportunity includes a stipend of $250 and community service hours.

Youth leaders selected for the program will participate in a variety of restoration and community service projects, recreational field trips, green-collar career exploration, and leadership skills development. These Green Team members will be able to explore their natural surroundings within the framework of environmental justice and stewardship. Program mentors will guide team members to eliminate perceived and actual barriers to participation, and demonstrate how restoring the environment brings global, local, and personal change.

We’re going to have a lot of fun this summer – if you’d like to join this summer’s Green Team, please complete the online application by the deadline of Friday, May 13.
