Youth now can apply for paid ‘Landscape & Learning’ summer positions

Teens looking for paid work experience in Sacramento this summer should consider applying to the City’s Landscape & Learning youth employment program.

The City currently is accepting applications for youth-aide positions in the Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment Department. L&L crews work in community parks and green spaces learning new skills, including plant maintenance and pruning. Participants also will learn about nature and receive specialized training while working with their peers.

Applicants must be 14-17 years old on April 30, 2022, and reside within Sacramento city limits to be eligible. The Landscape & Learning program runs from June 20 to Aug. 12 and pays $15 per hour.

“This paid work-based learning program engages young people in community service while building critical leadership and transferable job skills needed to be successful in college and career,” Youth Division Manager Monica Blanco said.

Applications are due Tuesday, April 5 by 4 p.m. and can be completed online or on paper. Paper applications can be picked up and submitted at the Belle Cooledge Community Center (5699 South Land Park Drive) during the recruitment period. Any applications received after the recruitment deadline will not be accepted.
