LEAF Project Inc
The LEAF Project is an exciting, young nonprofit organization at the forefront of youth development, social justice, and food system work in South Central PA. Partnering with regional leaders in farming and public health, LEAF creates a rare and powerful space for youth leaders to experience their capacity and engage in building a resilient food system. On our 4 acre home farm, LEAF runs a youth-powered sustainable vegetable farm that distributes produce through produce shares, restaurants, public health partnerships, and markets. Through seasonal internships, LEAF youth also engage in their own leadership development, workforce readiness skills, and move on to positions of increased responsibility running LEAF ventures in our community. LEAF’s mission is to cultivate youth leaders from diverse backgrounds through meaningful work in our local food system.
LEAF seeks to employ an engaged, innovative, and committed staff who have an investment in LEAF’s mission. All staff carry unique responsibility and leadership within their job description as well as responsibility in sustaining and building LEAF as a whole and making LEAF a rewarding place to work. All staff will participate in periodic feedback and have some direct interaction with youth interns.
