Green Team Youth
Groundwork Rhode Island’s summertime Green Team provides youth development and employment opportunities for high school students across Providence, Pawtucket, and Central Falls. Youth are hired for a six week period to participate in environmental education programs and community service projects that improve their city’s environment.
Our Pawtucket and Central Falls team is called Green Change Makers to reflect our collaboration with two other youth-serving organizations, Southside Community Land Trust and Harvest Kitchen (part of Farm Fresh RI).

Summer Green Team 2021
The Green Team in Providence and Green Change Makers in Pawtucket/Central Falls employ high school age youth each summer, ages 14-17, to engage in environmental education and stewardship projects that improve our communities. Green Team members develop hands-on skills related to urban environmental sustainability, as well as have the opportunity to travel to protected natural places in RI and beyond to engage in conservation efforts there as well. Green Team youth are challenged daily with the opportunity of working outdoors and engaging in physical improvement projects that make a visible difference in our community. Team members learn about various environmental sustainability efforts, and how they can be involved as leaders and activists to make our communities healthier places to live.
In 2021 we will be hiring 8 youth in Providence and 15 youth in Pawtucket and Central Falls! All youth will be paid $12/hour. We will continue following all Covid-19 protocols this summer to keep youth and our communities safe!
Our Providence team will be working 20 hours per week for 6 weeks, Monday-Thursday, 9am-2pm. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the Providence team.
