The Fellow will focus on supervising teens in the organization’s youth programs.

The Fellow will:

  • Lead teens to help operate community-facing food access and community engagement projects, such as  support for affordable and SNAP-accessible year-round farmers’ markets, community outreach and education campaigns, and more.
  • Supervise Root Crew members and Interns to plan, develop, and execute programs that increase access to fresh, healthy food in underserved Boston neighborhoods.



The FAO Schwarz Fellow will focus on helping plan for youth engagement in the Community Food Center (CFC) programs.

The Fellow will:

  • Review and integrate the results of community need assessments and feedback from youth program participants.
  • Conduct research and report on successful models from other organizations, including The Food Project’s partners at CFC Canada.
  • Help to develop curriculum, operational plans, and evaluation plans for youth involvement in the CFC.
  • Work closely with the Boston Community Programs Manager, Greater Boston Regional Director and The Food Project’s Deputy Director to plan for teen engagement. 



In addition to direct service and special project work, Fellows spend about 10 percent of their time on Fellowship professional development, cohort gatherings, and their Fellowship role. Each Fellow spends about two hours per week on Fellowship work in the area of social media, recruitment or professional development planning.

These experiences will help you leave a lasting mark on this program, collaborate closely with other Fellows, and acquire skills that will be valuable in your future educational and professional pursuits.
