Winter 2016 Institute
February 4-6, 2016
Greater Boston Area, MA
Many people come to The Food Project during the summer and are inspired by the beautiful, healthy food, and highly motivated, diverse teens working with passion towards a common mission. It seems to flow effortlessly. The truth is…our summers are the complementary outcome of the other half of the year when we run vibrant youth programs such as the Dirt and Root Crews and plan for the next summer.
During this Fall/Winter season, 50 teens are engaged in meaningful, age-appropriate challenges that help our communities as they deepen their knowledge and take action to create a sustainable and just food system. The lessons and actions are dynamic and “real-time” at shelters, farmers’ markets, greenhouses, in workshops they facilitate, and in the powerful feedback sessions with their peers and supervisors.
At the Winter Institute, you will experience:
- Winter season planning and program design
- The opportunity to work with youth and hear about their winter season work
- In-depth conversations with The Food Project staff
And you will learn:
- How to build a tiered youth development program
- How to mobilize and motivate teens year-round
- The foundations and planning for strong summer programs
