Second Chance Youth Garden Program Description
The Second Chance Youth Garden is an urban farm and job-training program in San Diego California. Our 6-week job training program combines job readiness with transitional employment and serves low-income, at-risk and formally incarcerated youth ages 14 -21. Youth interns gain hands on work experience on our urban farm sites and learn how to plant, cultivate, and harvest a wide variety of fruit and vegetables in a sustainable manner. They also learn work place skills such as timeliness, accountability, teamwork and appropriate behavior in the work place. Upon completion of the program youth can return as peer supervisors, and/or work to create education and career plans with our youth counselor and business services team.
