Mission Statement

Empowering at risk and foster youth through vocational opportunities in urban agriculture.

Description

Growing Alliances’ Fostered Youth Employment Program employs a team of youth ages 16-24 to grow food to donate, sell and cook for themselves, while they simultaneously participate in workshops on job skills and on the history, economics and politics of the food system.

Growing Alliances is a job readiness program, so our youth employees participate in weekly workshops, which cover work qualities that employers and researchers find valuable for job security. We provide other opportunities to gain applicable skills by creating Youth Positions in the organization that may relate more closely to their interests. These positions include but are not limited to: sales, social media coordinator, film maker, artist/designer, budgeting and community outreach/marketing.
