City Farm SLO is now accepting applications for its summer Youth Empowerment Program.

The program aims to help teens of all backgrounds develop skills for healthy successful futures through farm-based workshops.

The bilingual educational workshops cover a wide range of areas including health and wellness, leadership and team development, and career and college readiness, according to organizers.

Participants will also have hands-on sustainable agriculture instruction and will earn $200 for their participation.

Officials say they will be holding three summer cohorts in 2023.

The three programs will be held from June 20-29, July 10-20 and July 24-Aug 3. All sessions will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
