Southside Community Land Trust is offering 6-week summer jobs in both Providence and Pawtucket from early July to mid-August.
As SCLT youth staff, you will work together to help build community food systems where food is affordable, healthy and culturally appropriate. You will also learn and provide outreach about what an equitable, resilient and environmentally sustainable food system means.
Providence activities will be based in South Providence at SCLT’s Somerset Hayward Youth Enterprise Farm. The Pawtucket program, offered in partnership with Harvest Kitchen and Groundwork RI, will be divided among partner sites, including SCLT’s Galego Community Farm in Pawtucket.
Youth staff will be selected based on their interest in positively impacting their communities and willingness to engage in hands-on farming, cooking and food access tasks.
The deadline for applying is May 31, by 5 p.m.
This project is funded in part through the State of Rhode Island Governor’s Workforce Board.
