Thank you so much to everyone who has inquired about summer volunteer programs. Everybody Grows is happy to announce we have developed a summer volunteer program that will give participants the opportunity to learn about urban agriculture and nonprofit development through hands-on work. The program will begin July 8th and take place every Wednesday through August 17th. We will offer five hours of volunteering and learning opportunities each Wednesday, with the option to work more on other days. Minimum age to apply is 15.
If you are interested in applying, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 1st. Please write a short note about why you would like to work with Everybody Grows, and answer the following questions:
- Please share briefly about experience you have in one or more of the following areas. Gardening, cooking, carpentry, teaching, social media, photography, online research, elder care, and community organizing.
- Do you have access to a car during the day, and if so at what times? Are you comfortable driving other people?
- Are you currently attending school, and if so where and what are you studying?
Thanks again for your interest. We are happy to answer questions about the program. This will be our first year doing this, so we reserve the right to modify the program above, but trust that it will be a priority to provide a meaningful experience for each participant.
