Cultivating Community Youth Grow Interns

Learner mentors Youth Growers as they do work which includes working with a team of peers to grow, harvest and deliver fresh vegetables to seniors, learning about sustainable food systems, cooking lunch for one another, helping with community food security efforts, and practicing leadership and job readiness skills. Interns also provide workshops on food systems and food security topics to Youth Growers. Learners demonstrate their skills by working independently to grow and deliver vegetables, cook meals, and lead the group.

Peers evaluate themselves and each other during a weekly feedback session that includes both written and oral communication. Students share what is going well, and what needs to be improved.
