WHAT DO WE GROW?
Our product is the Teen.
Teens Grow Greens is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit where Teens “learn, grow, and go.” During a nine-month paid internship, Teens develop life skills through hands-on experience.
Our vision is to grow Teens who are purposeful leaders in their own lives, the lives of others, and the life of their environment.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
The "roots" of our experience are RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, and RESILIENCY . These foundational values apply to the Self, the Team, and the Environment, and are integrated into every aspect of the program.
Teens Grow Greens expects that all interns will abide by these principles throughout the nine months of the program and beyond. Monthly and unit check-ins help ensure that students continue to grow, even through setbacks and struggles.
WHAT ARE OUR GOALS?
The "branches" of our experience are HEALTHY LIVING, LEADERSHIP, and SELF-EFFICACY.
The Healthy Living goal encompasses both personal health and the health of the environment. The Leadership training gives TGG interns valuable communication, critical thinking, and entrepreneurship skills through team building and community service. And the Self-Efficacy goal helps grow TGG interns’ confidence and strength of belief in their own abilities.
