Green Corps Program
Youth Green Corps is a partnership between Seattle Goodwill Industries and Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation. It is a nine-month work readiness program that connects and engages disconnected young adults, ages 18 through 24, who are not working or in school, with opportunities to obtain and maintain a family-supporting career. The overall goals for the program are to provide work experience, college exposure, and future planning so that youth completing the program are either placed in jobs or attend programs at local community colleges. The Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation provides on-the-job training and work experience in restoration and trail maintenance practices for the Pacific Northwest ecology.
