Dear Groundwork Community,


Our planet and our communities face major threats. Ask yourself: Who will solve the problems of food insecurity and environmental degradation? What will future communities need in order to overcome the challenges posed by a changing climate? Groundwork Somerville's answer: diverse young leaders like the members of our Green Team.

Groundwork prepares youth for lives of professional fulfillment and community leadership through work projects focused on urban agriculture, environmental justice, and civic engagement. The Green Team reflects the cultural diversity of our City and of Somerville High School, where students speak over 50 languages and face the economic and racial injustice still present in our ever-changing community. We know our diverse cultural backgrounds give our community strength, and we aim to harness this in our work towards food, environmental, economic, and racial justice.

Help us to work with, employ, and engage the next generation of leaders by getting involved today!
