Applications Open for Summer of Solutions 2012

Applications are now open to join the Portland Summer of Solutions (SOS). Summer of Solutions is a people-powered program for youth (ages 14-30) to develop their leadership and build just, sustainable economies in their communities.

You will be a Solutionary: young leaders who work to uplift local communities, build the green economy, and push for social justice.

The program gives participants the opportunity to create and support local green economy projects while acquiring skills and strategies that empower them as agents of Solutionary change wherever they go

The Portland Summer of Solutions will:

  • Engage the residents of low income communities of color to connect with valuable pre-existing local resources
  • Work with local partners around sustainable community engagement to bolster partners’ capacities and provide a valuable learning experience
  • Introduce participants to incredibly diverse and historical communities
  • Promote personal sustainable action and social justice

E-mail with resume, cover letter, and willingness to converse to apply for the Portland Summer of Solutions!
