The Programs Assistant will also meet regularly with our Community Council to get feedback on CSF programming and help increase community engagement in our programs. This role will work with staff to review our previous youth programming along with best practices in the fields of food justice education, environmental justice education, youth development, and workforce development to make recommendations for current field trip curriculum and future youth programming.
