Position Overview

The Youth Program Coordinator is one of the primary facilitators for GRuB’s Summer Program (serving youth ages 14-21) as well as the seasonal GroundED program (youth ages 16-21).  The summer program is a hybrid job training and summer school accredited program for students who are disengaged in their education, with the emphasis on small scale sustainable farming.  The GroundED program has a similar structure and curriculum, focusing on serving youth who are pursuing their GED through GRAVITY.


This position also supports our little kid farm education, farm market programs, seasonal farm work, and will lean into various activities of other programs as needed, including organizational fundraising efforts.


Most of all, this position’s priority is to deliver an empowering program for youth that supports GRuB in fulfilling its mission. This position has room to grow into increased management and leadership responsibilities.  Regardless of experience, the first year will have ample time built in for mentorship in the cross-training of these responsibilities.
