Summer Sprouts is an intensive project-based summer employment program for 20-25 San Francisco high school students. It is a collaboration between Urban Sprouts, the Mayor’s Youth Employment and Education Program (MYEEP), and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Youth develop job skills including; learning the importance of punctuality, commitment, responsibility, and cooperation, as well as horticultural skills that can serve them in many professions. Summer Sprouts capitalizes on opportunities during the summer to involve youth in sustained outdoor time, helping them to connect deeply to the natural environment, develop habits of healthy eating, and to enjoy physical activity in an outdoor setting with caring peers and adults.
