Summer Program Fellow, CitySprouts
Location:         Cambridge, MA
Dates:         June 25 - August 10, 2018 (Program dates may shift slightly. There is some flexibility to extend for funding sources that require more hours)
Hours:         8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday - Friday
Compensation:     The CitySprouts Summer Fellowship is an unpaid position
Reporting to:     Program Manager

CitySprouts is a non-profit school garden program that works with public schools to build capacity to integrate the school garden into teachers’ curriculum and the school culture. CitySprouts partners with 23 public schools in Cambridge and Boston, MA. Our Middle School Program consists of both afterschool and summer programming with a goal to make the experience of garden-based learning accessible to all young people.

CitySprouts’ Summer Program is based in Cambridge and Boston and provides 100 youth (ages 11-14) with hands-on learning through growing, harvesting, preparing and eating healthy food in an urban garden. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the summer program fosters a strong connection to their natural urban environment through working and learning in the garden.

CitySprouts is seeking, energetic, diverse, and outgoing college students* to provide essential support to the Summer Program. We expect to accept approximately 10 CitySprouts Summer Fellows for seven weeks during the summer of 2018. CitySprouts Summer Fellows can expect a significant learning opportunity as well as opportunities for career exploration. Summer Fellows work in pairs, directly with a CitySprouts Garden Coordinator and will also:
Receive training in:
Urban agriculture
Teaching about food and the environment
Managing youth groups in an outdoor setting
Building relationships with and teaching middle school youth
Participate in weekly staff meetings
Collaborate with a garden maintenance team as stewards for multiple school gardens
Engage in daily lesson and activity planning in inquiry and project-based curriculum.
Help build youth’s STEM, social-emotional, gardening, and cooking skills

The CitySprouts Summer Fellowship is an opportunity for interested applicants to gain first-hand experience working in the heart of a growing nonprofit organization. Summer Fellows will be given significant responsibility toward making the summer program a successful experience for all participants, as well as in representing CitySprouts to young people, families and the larger community. All members of CitySprouts staff, including Fellows, are expected to uphold the following expectations:
Be curious, open and willing to try new things
Express enthusiasm for the CitySprouts program in the garden, in the neighborhood and on field trips
Approach the physical labor of garden maintenance with energy and a positive attitude
Stay mindful of the impact adults have on young people and foster a positive & respectful relationship between youth, other Fellows and CitySprouts staff.
We expect Fellows and staff to be thoughtful and reflective about how their own identities affect interactions with youth and each other.
Have a transportation plan. Not all of our sites are walkable to main lines of public transportation, and fellows are expected to move among sites within the work day. We find that fellows who have access to a vehicle (either a bicycle or a car) are happiest during the summer. We expect fellows to think through their transportation plan before the start of the summer.

Summer Fellow Responsibilities:
Youth Development and Education
Assist the Garden Coordinator in teaching a team of summer middle school interns about growing food, garden care, healthy cooking, science of the garden, food justice, community service, and the natural environment
Work with the Garden Coordinator to plan inquiry and project based activities and lessons for interns related to the above topics
Mentor middle school youth and encourage their leadership skills
Chaperone youth on field trips to local farms, food pantries and grocery stores
Urban Agricultural Skills
Work as part of an afternoon garden maintenance crew, perform routine tasks such as watering, weeding, harvesting and planting
Complete special garden maintenance and construction projects with garden crew
Cooking and Food
Responsible for pantry inventory at summer internship site
Responsible for overseeing and maintaining safety during youth meal preparation

Important Notes:
Fellows are central to our summer staffing and the success of our summer youth program, so we ask for a commitment to the full seven-week time period.
The CitySprouts Summer Fellowship is an unpaid position. We ask all Fellows to either secure funding through their school’s service learning & career center or receive Internship credits from their college or university. We do not provide housing. If funding for the summer is an issue please contact us about potential resources.

Please respond to the following questions/prompts in no more than a page
(The cost of living for 2 months in the greater Boston area is approximately $2,500) In this unpaid internship, my funding or Internship credits will be coming from...
The experience I bring to this internship will be...
The skills and experience I hope to gain include...
Please include two references that can speak to your work or school experience.

*In our experience, this position has worked best for college students because they can access a funding and support system that allows them to participate in a demanding full time experience for 9-weeks without pay. However, if a qualified candidate who is not currently enrolled in college can give compelling evidence that they will be able to complete the fellowship without that support, we will gladly consider them.

Please send one page application & resume to Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with preference given to those received before March 15, 2018
