Groundwork Indy Inc

Groundwork Indy is changing places and changing lives by employing youth to work on community-based projects that equitably enhance environmental, economic, and social well-being. Tax ID 47-3863928


The mission of Groundwork Indy’s youth employment and development programs is to develop a skilled and professional youth corps, and to build capacity in communities for the care of public spaces and the built environment.  Groundwork Indy has two youth employment programs: the Green Team, which engages youth ages 14-18 who are enrolled in high school; and the GroundCorp, which engages out-of-school youth ages 16-24. Youth build leadership skills, environmental awareness, and life skills through taking part in hands-on improvement projects, leading local environmental initiatives, and participating in service-learning projects.  The programs fosters awareness and understanding of the natural environment, local food systems, and the need for the protection and restoration of critical ecological systems and natural resources in Indianapolis.
