CitySprouts is a non-profit school garden program that works with public schools to build capacity to integrate the school garden into teachers’ curriculum and the school culture. CitySprouts partners with 21 public schools in Cambridge and Boston, MA. Our Middle School Program consists of both afterschool and summer programming with a goal to make the experience of garden-based learning accessible to all young people.
CitySprouts’ Summer Program is based in Cambridge and Boston and provides 90 youth (ages 11-14) with hands-on learning through growing, harvesting, preparing and eating healthy food in an urban garden. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the summer program fosters a strong connection to their natural urban environment through working and learning in the garden. CitySprouts is seeking, energetic, diverse, and outgoing college students* to provide essential support to the Summer Program. We expect to accept approximately 12 CitySprouts Summer Fellows for seven weeks during the summer of 2019. CitySprouts Summer Fellows can expect a significant learning opportunity as well as opportunities for career exploration.
