Green Team Youth Program 

The Groundwork Indy Green Team program is intended to promote awareness and understanding of the natural environment, local food systems, and the protection and restoration of critical ecological systems and natural resources in the community through hands on improvement programs. Through the Indy Green Team Summer Program youth will be encouraged to become engaged members of the community by solving environmental issues especially those issues concerning the Northwest area as well as preparing for educational and career success in alternative “green” sector and environmental pathways.

The Green Team program offers part-time paid positions for middle and high school students, ages 14-18. The program has dual goals- to prepare youth for a lifetime of community and environmental leadership and to develop community capacity to improve the physical environment.
