Here in San Francisco, Enterprise for High School Students (EHSS) is a school-to-work/youth development agency that encourages students to explore career interests by offering programs to help them gain work-related experience. One such opportunity is the Summer Gardening Program. It is held at Buena Vista Park, McLaren Park, and the SF Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park.
The kids involved get to explore opportunities in the horticultural field, beautify the community, and put a great job reference under their belts, all while earning a paycheck!
