Sustainability Education and Student Employment Internships

  • The 2017 Garden of Youth student interns

    The Department of Sustainability provides opportunities for students to learn about resource conservation, the environment and waste diversion. Opportunities such as the DPS Energy Challenge and Hydration Campaigns are shared with interested classes and schools.  

    We partner with Exceptional Student Services to provide paid internships for students to develop their job skills.  Interns work in small groups alongside a DPS job coach to hone their skills and learn organic gardening. Since 2011, Garden of Youth interns provide care in designated school gardens across the district.
