Youth Crew Members
Applications for the Fall Crew are open now!
Youth Crew Members (ages 14-18) at Mill Village Farms join an engaging and energetic team growing farm fresh foods. Youth also learn leadership, teamwork, and basic job skills. Youth Crew Members help with our day-to-day operations and distribute food to the community through our FoodShare program and our new Veggie Cart located in Downtown Greenville. In conjunction, youth crew members participate in a weekly youth entrepreneurship program while working with a group of peers on an entrepreneurial project. Youth crew members serve as advocates in the community and are held to high standards of performance and behavior while also earning a stipend.
