Roots to Harvest is looking for a dynamic, hard working individual to lead our work with high school aged youth at schools and in kitchens as well as run summer youth employment programs and community outreach.
At first glance, Roots to Harvest may appear to be an urban agriculture focused organization, but we encourage applicants to look much deeper than that. Roots to Harvest is first and foremost about working with people—in particular, youth and young adults. Looking to the margins of society, we seek to create meaningful opportunities to employ and engage young people, using food and agriculture as the medium to connect with the community and each other. We work hard to find the delicate balance between challenge and achievement in all of our program and projects.
Roots to Harvest is a small, grassroots organization that is still maturing and coming into its own. We are a small staff and every position involves elements of organizational development and maintenance. We aim to foster a culture that is transparent, inclusive, progressive, and productive. As staff, we work collaboratively, we work hard, we do what needs to be done and we try to keep the big picture in mind.
If you prefer to work alone, dislike ambiguity, and adhere to a very strict schedule, then working with Roots to Harvest probably isn’t right for you. But if you’re looking for a fun, fast paced, multifaceted, energizing and rewarding work environment that will push you every single day, then we want to hear from you!
