Green Leaders Apprenticeship Program

Bank of America and The Daly Foundation

Funded by Bank of America and The Daly Foundation, this apprenticeship program equips students with life skills that can help them gain full employment in horticulture-related fields and address critical workforce shortages in the specialized industry of horticulture management.  Using climate tech, students will help analyze the health of existing plants and develop proposals for future plantings, and will assess the impacts of our trees and native plants.  Additionally, they will offer community educational opportunities where residents can either volunteer to garden on The Underline or learn how to replicate our native ecosystems where they live.

All ages are welcome and many students fulfill volunteer requirements through this high impact program.
