Riverside Teen Corps Horticulture Internship Program
Want to Help Beautify Your Community? Need Service Hours? Interested in gaining green job skills?
Join Riverside Park Conservancy’s Teen Corps!
During the summer months Riverside Park Conservancy provides an experiential learning program for teenage volunteers interested in learning basic horticultural knowledge and skills. Volunteers work closely with our zone gardeners to care for spring plantings, prepare park areas for fall plantings, maintain key horticultural sites, and keep the park safe, clean, and healthy. All high school teens (rising freshmen — graduating seniors) are welcome to apply – in particular, teens living in the West Harlem neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights, Manhattanville, and Morningside Heights.
Teen Corps Horticulture Interns:
- Assist in caring for diverse plantings of trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, grasses and bulbs
- Assist with seasonal landscaping work including weeding, watering, removing invasive species, mulching, aerating tree pits, and general cleanup
- Assist with preparation, staffing, and cleanup for group volunteer groups
- Assist in maintaining equipment and supplies needed to perform weekly tasks
Every Tuesday and Thursday this summer, July 7 through August 27, 2020.
