GVI's 2019 Summer Youth Farm Crew will start June 22nd. This summer, 12 Youth will be enrolled in our 8-week urban farming, food justice and leadership development program. The Youth Leadership Program cultivates young food leaders in Bridgeport by developing skills in agricultural knowledge, food justice, career readiness, and leadership. These skills are achieved through participation in the Summer Youth Crew, Food Leader Advisory Group, and Academic Year Internships. Youth determine their role in the food system by forging meaningful connections with their neighbors, land, community, and city.
Applications will be accepted until April 22nd.
Youth must submit a recommendation along with their application. The recommendation form is included in the application.
The Summer Youth Farm Crew is a component of the Green Village Initiative Youth Leadership Program.
