The GreenThumb Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is an opportunity for high school aged youth and college students to volunteer at a community garden in New York City. The program will takes place during the spring and summer months from May to July. Participating in the YLC is a great way to give back to the community, earn volunteer hours, make friends, learn new skills, and have fun! Students are required to volunteer at a garden at least twice a month accumulating 20 hours throughout the summer.
