Are you or someone you know 15–19 years old and looking for an awesome way to spend your summer AND get paid?
We are now accepting applications for the Summer 2018 BEETS Cohort! In this paid program, teens will learn how to grow healthy food, meet new friends, teach kids about the environment, and make a difference in the community through field trips and garden maintenance projects.
This summer’s focus will be environmental justice. BEETS learn where their food comes from, how fresh fruit and vegetables can heal our bodies and communities, and how to grow their own food. They can gain valuable leadership and job skills, all while earning a stipend!
The Summer 2018 BEETS schedule includes trips to Alcatraz and local farms. We’ll also be growing beets (the plant kind!) that will be turned into ice cream and sold by our friends at Salt + Straw in Hayes Valley.
The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, June 7th at 5pm.
