Our Youth Grow Program bridges garden-based education to student curriculum, increases family engagement within the school community, and brings fresh food to cafeterias and local families. Garden Assistant volunteers support our lead Garden Educators in delivering hands-on indoor and outdoor garden activities. We are partnered with nine schools located in North, Northeast and Southeast Portland. To view our partner school locations click here. Volunteers commit to one morning a week for 4 week session.
The summer term runs from late June-early August from 9am-12 pm once a week. Each session happens on different days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday) depending on our school partner. To apply for summer term fill out the application below:
