The GreenThumb Youth Leadership Council (YLC) offers opportunities for youth ages 13-21 to volunteer in a community garden this spring and summer!

With the GreenThumb YLC, youth learn firsthand how to grow and maintain a healthy garden. YLC participants also work on projects in the garden, gaining skills such as carpentry, composting, environmental stewardship, community organizing, and event management. Joining YLC is a great way to make a positive impact in your neighborhood, earn community service hours, make new friends, learn important skills, and have fun!
