High school students invited to apply for summer jobs at SCLT

SCLT has been working in South Providence since 1981 to provide people access to land, education and other resources to enable them to grow their own food. We are actively expanding our work in Central Falls, Pawtucket and Cranston. As a youth staff member, you will help create community food systems where food is affordable, healthy, environmentally sustainable and culturally appealing.

Youth staff aged 14-18 are chosen based on availability, interest in positively impacting communities and a willingness to participate in farming and food access work. Interested, qualified candidates will be contacted and invited to participate in a group, working interview. All application components must be fully completed for your application to be considered.
