The Green Crew is an innovative youth conservation program that provides green jobs training and career counseling to Hartford’s out-of-school young adults. Corpsmembers take part in year-long horticultural training and life skills workshops before advancing to further educational and employment opportunities.
While participating in life skills, GED and job skills trainings, Green Crew members serve the City of Hartford by:
- Leading horticultural service projects across the city
- Supporting community and corporate volunteer groups
- Maintaining green spaces and KNOX’s community gardens
- Planting trees to enhance Hartford’s urban forest
In exchange for their service, members earn a living stipend and receive school and job placement counseling for one year after completing their service.
