During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
The GreenHouse is an innovative community enrichment center that offers tutoring, mentoring, leadership development, recreation, and enrichment activities for our youth in the Gardenland-Northgate neighborhood of Sacramento. Our mission is to cultivate a thriving community by nurturing the emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical development of our youth and inspiring them to grow to their full potential.
We serve elementary-aged students and teens in a neighborhood with one of the highest concentrations of children living in poverty in the Sacramento area. Less than half of the students enrolled in our after-school programs are at or above grade level in the areas of Language Arts and Math. At the same time, it is a community bursting with parent and youth leadership and a wide diversity of strong families who are highly committed to their children's success, including families from Russia, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, all over Latin America, and immigrant communities from Laos.
At The GreenHouse, you will gain first-hand experience working in a vibrant and diverse community, addressing the needs and challenges of its youth. Interns at The GreenHouse impact students through program development, staff support, tutoring, mentoring, and leadership development.
R4, an after-school program for junior and senior high students, provides youth with a volunteer tutor who helps them with homework and mentors them. Students also improve academic skills and participate in enrichment workshops.
You can support GreenHouse Director of Youth Programs with the teen after-school program 4 hours a week. Tasks may include: Preparing interactive learning games, developing team-building and leadership development activities, coordinating workshops, and working one-on-one with Jr. High and High School students in areas where they are struggling in their academics.
We hope to offer some version of regular programming in Fall 2020, depending on health concerns and local regulations. If you're interested in volunteering in our fall programs, please contact us and we'll keep you posted as things progress.
If interested, contact The GreenHouse to set up an interview.

The GreenHouse is located at the heart of a community of amazing strength, resilience and creativity.
This block is home to more than 1000 people, many of whom have recently immigrated from as many as
a dozen countries around the world. The diversity of languages, foods, experiences, and perspectives
here is vibrant.
We have students in GreenHouse programs from a diversity of countries and backgrounds, including
Mexico, Guatemala, Afghanistan, Ukraine, India, and Russia. We also have African-American, Native-
American, and Caucasian students. We believe that this rich diversity of cultures and experiences is one
of our greatest assets, a powerful gift that our community offers to greater Sacramento.
