Norris Square Neighborhood Project is full of gratitude this Thanksgiving season for The Philadelphia Foundation's Fund for Children's recent grant of $35,000 in support of our Youth and Children After School Programs. 

It is in partnership with funders like the Philadelphia Foundation that we are able to provide a safe creative space for youth in our community. 

The Philadelphia Foundation's Fund for Children is supported through generous annual contributions from the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies.

Saludos amigos,

We’re approaching the end of the year at Norris Square Neighborhood Project and what an exciting growing season it’s been. We had a very successful first year of our farmstand, partnered with La Puerta Abierta andnewcomer youth to find therapeutic space in the gardens, and celebrated this years harvest with community members.

As we experience the first frosts of the year, we’re putting the garden beds to rest, moving plants inside our small greenhouse, cleaning the gardens and preparing for a chilly winter season.

Our wonderful Urban Garden Director Ana recently received the opportunity to return to her home country of Mexico so that she could work with indigenous communities in Oaxaca. We are unbelievably happy for her for this opportunity and we’re excited to announce we are opening the position of Urban Garden Director with a start date of mid-December.

For people who are interested in community organizing, this is an amazing opportunity to work in the neighborhood around issues of food justice. There are opportunities to work with youth and share staff meeting space with youth as this is an organization centered-on youth voice. 75% of the role is outside working with community members and 25% admin work. If a person is looking to work directly in the community, this is a unique opportunity to have that experience.

The ideal person will be bilingual (English/Spanish) and excited to work in the neighborhood and be part of social change centered-on food justice in the community.  Diverse candidates are highly encouraged to apply.

En Solidaridad,

Ana Martina Rivas & Justin Trezza
