Summer Job for Teens

UC Green Is Accepting Applications!

Do you know a teen who is enthusiastic, dedicated, hard-working, not afraid of getting dirty, loves the outdoors, and is team-oriented?

The UC Green Corps, a greening maintenance program, offers environmental education and job training for youth and adult leadership. The program provides sustainable seasonal maintenance to trees and select public spaces in University City, West, and Southwest Philly.

The goal of the program is to help ensure that newly planted trees receive care during their first two growing seasons.

Part-time summer employment with UC Green offers a rewarding summer tree maintenance program targeting local youth in the University City, West, and Southwest Philadelphia area interested in working outdoors and learning more about how to care for the trees in our urban forest.

For more information, contact Winnie Harris, program and volunteer coordinator at UC Green, by phone at 215-573-4684 or by e-mail at
