Educating Our Youth


Not just growing food, but growing people. 

Our Youth Corps is an entrepreneurial youth development, apprenticeship program.  It offers youth from low-income backgrounds both academic and professional experience.  Supporters of Growing Power's Youth Corps include the City of Chicago's After School Matters.  Several universities have specified their interest in this program, stating that scholarships are available for those youth that qualify for entrance to these sponsoring universities.


Milwaukee Youth Corps

We provide opportunities for young people to learn the basics of organic agriculture, develop their leadership and entrepreneurial skills, work with a diverse group of people and gain valuable life skills that will apply to future social and work experiences. 


Chicago Youth Corps

In Chicago, youth learn a wide range of skills at our urban farm projects and take that knowledge to the streets with their Food Literacy Project.
