When we plant seeds, People Grow



We believe youth have the power to shape their own future.

Our mission: to create opportunities for youth enrichment in their neighborhood through community engagement, job training, and education. We envision a diverse community of empowered, skilled and capable youth working to strengthen their local environment.

Get Involved




You can make a difference for the youth in our program! Sign up to volunteer individually — or organize a service day with your coworkers,  school group, friends or family.

Support our Programs

Our youth training programs are youth-run businesses! By using Youth Ops Lawn Care and buying fresh produce from us, you're supporting youth as they learn to do meaningful work in their community!


We use donated funds to power our program and pay youth for the work they do. You can enable us to accept more youth into our training program next summer by donating today! 

Latest News

In the off-season, we're working hard to build our curriculum, improve our lots and raise funding to pay youth trainees next season.
