SCLT is offering 6-week jobs for youth in Providence and Pawtucket this summer that will focus on farming, cooking, teaching and community organizing. Programs will run consecutively in Providence and Pawtucket, from July 8-August 16. Each will offer hands-on cooking and farm shifts, as well as remote learning about nutrition, environmental justice and the food system.
In Providence, youth staff will grow and cook fruits and vegetables, learn about the food system, assist with important farm tasks and help teach workshops about nutrition to adults and children. SCLT’s youth staff play a key role in the mission of our organization and help lead conversations with their neighbors and peers about community gardens and healthy, local food.
