Fresh Roots and UBC Faculty of Education’s Intergenerational Landed Learning program have been excitedly collaborating and planning to produce our most exciting year of SOYL youth programming yet!
The SOYL summer employment and leadership program empowers secondary students to cultivate and steward food gardens on school grounds for learning, community building and growing Good Food for All. Through the program, youth develop skills in growing, cooking and selling food, as well as a greater connection to themselves, their community, and the Vancouver food system. They also receive a stipend, community service hours and work experience credit for their contributions. See our SOYL page for more details.
SOYL includes weekly Community Eats lunches, and we have some special volunteer needs to help make this program a reality.
- Volunteer Chefs (4 positions) – applications are due June 12th
- Delivery for Community Eats Volunteer (1 position) – applications are due June 26th
