The Greenager Program is an outdoor youth leadership program created and designed to offer early high school teens a chance to play an important role in the community by improving the city’s green spaces through stewardship, engagement, raising awareness, creating place-based projects focused on topics participants value and are interested in, and to simply connect youth to the wonders of the great urban outdoor playground we call home.
We are looking for rising 9th to 10th grade students who are interested in getting involved in their community and local parks as youth advocates, enjoy meeting new people and want to gain work experience.
To be a Greenager the participant must meet the criteria below:
- Must live in or attend a school in the Southeast Sector of San Francisco (Excelsior, Portola, Bayview, Hunter’s Point, Visitation Valley, Crocker Amazon, or Potrero Hill) or Northeast Sector of San Francisco (Western Addition, Tenderloin and Chinatown.)
- Must be a 9th or 10th grade student.
- Must be able to commit to the full program that runs from June 2, 2018-January 26, 2019
No experience is necessary. Students can earn a stipend of up to $100 a month. To apply online, click HERE.
