The GreenHouse is an innovative community enrichment center that offers tutoring, mentoring, leadership development, recreation, and enrichment activities for under-resourced 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 low-income 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.
