About Teens Grow Greens (website)

Our vision is to grow Teens who are purposeful leaders in their own lives, the lives of others, and the life of their environment

The "roots" of our experience areRESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, and RESILIENCY . These foundational values apply to the Self, the Team, and the Environment, and are integrated into every aspect of the program.

Teens Grow Greens expects that all interns will abide by these principles throughout the nine months of the program and beyond.  Monthly and unit check-ins help ensure that students continue to grow, even through setbacks and struggles.
