The application for Summer Youth Farm Crew will open in spring. Check back here!

The Summer Youth Crew is a component of the Green Village Initiative Youth Leadership Program.

We are so excited to bring this year's Youth Farm Crew on board! Our 2019 Summer Youth Crew will start in late June. Applications will be accepted in spring. This summer, 12 Youth will be enrolled in our 8-week urban farming, food justice and leadership development program. 

The Youth Leadership Program cultivates young food leaders in Bridgeport by developing skills in agricultural knowledge, food justice, career readiness, and leadership. These skills are achieved through participation in the Summer Youth Crew, Food Leader Advisory Group, and Academic Year Internships. Youth determine their role in the food system by forging meaningful connections with their neighbors, land, community, and city.
