About TLC



Creating personal and social change through small urban agricultural youth run food businesses | Urban grown and raised.

Our Mission

The mission of the Teen Leadership Corps is to create a caring productive and diverse community of youth and adults who work together to learn about food, farming, entrepreneurship, and each other.  Our community works together to grow organic food, create urban agricultural based products and services, and learn essential skills.  We provide youth leadership opportunities and a place to learn and earn.  

Our Vision

We envision a world where youth are active leaders, diverse communities feel connected to the land and each other, and people work together to benefit the communities in which they live.

Our Values

We believe:

  • Youth and adult partnerships are at the heart of our best work;
  • We are stewards of our land and our community – and in return this land and our community sustains us
  • Our strength grows from diversity and meaningful, enjoyable, work
