Summer Apprenticeship Program and
Summer High School Program
The 6-week Summer Apprenticeship Program (SAP) and the High School Program (HSP) immerses participants in the work of Growing Places Indy, from hands-on farm work to community engagement, fundraising, youth education, personal development and more. Participants are challenged to consider what change they want to see in the world and are trained in skills they can employ to take personal and sustainable action. Participants build lifelong relationships within their cohort; deepen their self-knowing, self-understanding and self-confidence; and have the opportunity to meet many leaders and entrepreneurs doing transformational work in the Indianapolis area. Our aim is to provide space to empower participants to align mind, body, and spirit through the power of food and community. The HSP is designed for rising Juniors and Seniors in High School, special exceptions can be made for mature Sophomores, and graduated Seniors.
