Young Chefs Announces Summer Program in Northfield, MN: Two Paid Positions for Gardening, Cooking and Science

We recently announced our launch of our new garden launched together with Kitchen Garden Laboratory at the Middle School in Northfield, MN. We are now proud to announce our launch of a summer program that will incorporate gardening, cooking, and science to provide underserved youth with rewarding learning experiences in the kitchen, classroom, and beyond. Specifically, we are partnering with the Northfield Middle School Summer Plus program to hire two site assistants that will work to actively create and teach science, cooking and garden curriculum over the summer, in addition to helping with day-to-day tasks at the school and mentoring and supporting the Middle School students in their normal academic activities.

All site assistants will spend 1-2 hours working each morning tending to, and teaching in, the Northfield Middle School  Garden and spend 3-4 hours leading groups of middle school students through daily activities at Carleton with the Kitchen Garden Laboratory, Young Chefs, and other on-campus organizations involved with the Summer Plus Program. Site assistants you will also join our team to develop the schoolyard garden this spring! Such a program has never existed in Northfield before, so if you are interested in taking it on, you can truly make it your own.
