How to Apply to Windy City Harvest Youth Farm


Windy City Harvest Youth Farm hires high school students for summer and after-school jobs. In order to be eligible, students must be currently enrolled in high school, at least 14 years old, and live or go to school near the farm site to which they are applying.

Where to Begin

Students can apply for summer programs starting in January each year. Students should select the farm closest to where they live or go to school and follow that location’s application procedures. Students work on the farms early Spring through late Fall and must be able to commit to the shift for their farm. Shift information is listed on the application for each site.
