Youth Community Agriculture Program

YCAP’s goal is to cultivate extraordinary teen leaders empowered with the skills to live healthy and productive lives and to transform their food system and communities. The program enables youth to farm, cook, break bread, communicate, and activate change together, directly impacting their experience of place and relationships within the food system – as well as their taste buds, health, sense of community, and ability to succeed. YCAP includes three tracks; click below to explore each of the opportunities.

YCAP’s target population is underserved/under-resourced Louisville youth/young adults (16-20 years), with emphasis on engaging residents who live or learn in the area surrounding Iroquois Urban Farm in South Louisville. We strive to engage English Learners (EL) at Iroquois High School (IHS) who face significant barriers to reaching their full potential as healthy, thoughtful, responsible citizens of our diverse, shared world. We also aim to enroll youth in multiple YCAP tracks and to retain them in the program for multiple years to deepen the power of their learning experience and amplify their community impact.

We are currently hiring for Crew Members for the Summer 2020 term. Click here to access the application and requirements.
