Tommy somerville updating my resume
Through this program, Groundwork and its supporters offer the opportunity for low-income youth to be hired into meaningful, environmental jobs, and receive on-the-job training for long-term careers in this field.
The Green Team, our youth environmental job training program, epitomizes this synergy.
For someone who hails from a slightly conservative background, this is important to me.
I can honestly say that Groundwork Somerville’s programs are invariably viewed as an asset, regardless of one’s political persuasion.
Targeted to low-income and youth of color, the Green Team receives training to perform tangible environmental improvements, and go on to create real change by increasing green space, food access for families in need, and cleaning up the Mystic River.
This is a job that not only gives youth much-needed income, but stimulates their minds and passions through active work.
