CommunityGrows is now taking applications for our Summer 2013 BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) Program. This is a four-month green jobs training program for youth 15-19 years old, primarily living in the Western Addition of San Francisco. The session runs from June 11-August 8, 2013, and candidates should be available Mondays-Fridays from 12:00 noon to 3:00 PM, as well as one-to-two Saturdays per month, with potentially additional hours as scheduled.
Youth gain experience in resume writing and goal setting, as well as in community gardening.
