It’s not too late for 14- and 15-year old’s to apply for the Greenwich Youth Conservation Program jobs this summer. The deadline is May 1.
The GYCP will offer 112 Greenwich teens a unique “first job” opportunity to learn teamwork and employment skills while enhancing the Town’s environment.
Working in teams, the young people make significant improvements to the town-owned green spaces, developing a sense of camaraderie along the way.
This summer marks the program’s 37th year of Teens Working for a Greener Greenwich. Any Greenwich resident age 14-15 is welcome to apply. Students may obtain an application form from the Guidance Department of all public middle schools or from the GHS School Career Center. Private School students can get an application from Christina Nappi the Dept of Social Services at Town Hall at (203) 622-7792 or email her at [email protected]
Students complete the applications and then sign up for and complete a group interview conducted in May. The interviews take place in the public schools or at Town Hall for private school students.
The GYCP is a non-profit public-private partnership of the Greenwich Dept. of Social Services and Parks Rec, the Conservation Commission and Green & Clean, and private donors and sponsors. All are committed to developing the potential of Greenwich teens.
GYCP relies on public and private donations to be able to employe the teens
and give them their stipends of $225. We are trying to raise the money
needed now for this years teens to participate. Any one interested in
making a donation can make check payable to “Greenwich Youth Conservation
Program” and mail to my attention at Social Services in Town Hall 101 Field
Point Road, Greenwich CT 06830.
