2018 Groundwork Rhode Island Green Team Youth Application
Groundwork Rhode Island is a non-profit organization working in urban communities to create environmentally based economic opportunities as well as improving our shared green spaces across Rhode Island. Our Green Team is a youth employment program for young adults ages 14-18 that focuses on environmental education and stewardship projects to improve our communities. Our Green Team members will develop job and networking skills needed in the 21st century and come away from the summer with an understanding of the struggles that urban communities face as they work towards becoming more sustainable. We want youth who are looking for the opportunity to explore the challenges that our urban communities are facing and who can come up with creative solutions to those challenges.
