Green Team

Are you a Somerville high schooler looking to make a difference in your community? The Green Team is a teen employment and leadership program. Green Team Members get paid to work towards Groundwork Somerville’s mission of a cleaner, greener, healthier, and more equitable city.

Right now we are taking interest applications for the new fall Biking Division of the Green Team - Apply by October 13!

We typically have a Green Team for the summer between school years, but in 2024, we plan to extend our options during more of the school year. Check out the Green Team page for more info and how to apply!


Over its twenty years, Groundwork Somerville has hosted dozens of college interns from Tufts University (including its Tisch Scholars program), Emerson College, Harvard University, MIT, Lesley University, Simmons College, UMass, Bunker Hill Community College and Suffolk University. Students and young professionals design and implement their own work projects with GWS staff advice and supervision. They experience work in the non-profit sector, and learn first-hand the importance of collaboration with public and private community partners.

Unfortunately at this time, we do not have any paid internship opportunities. However, if you are interested in interning with us in 2024 and can obtain funding through your university career center, please reach out to us at We are open to hosting students working on projects related to agriculture, youth development, education, climate & sustainability, and more.
