Youth Ambassadors Program

Bookworm Gardens has a terrific opportunity for enthusiastic, energetic and responsible middle and high school students! The Youth Ambassadors Program consists of Youth Volunteers and Youth Interns who provide valuable support for the mission of Bookworm Gardens-to enrich the mind, body, and spirit of the young and the young at heart through exploration in a garden environment based on children’s literature. 

Upcoming Opportunity: Join us on Tuesday April 18 from 4 - 5 PM for an information session for teens (age 13+). RSVP to Karen at youth@bookwormgardens.org
