Thank you for your interest in the Teen Corps program at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Garden.
This program is available to any teenager aged 15 to 18 who resides in the city of Columbus or is a student in the Columbus City School District. Applicants should have an interest in the environment, gardening and entrepreneurship and have an interest in sharing knowledge with the public at our weekly farmer’s market.
A complete application consists of this application form and two recommendation forms that should be completed by two different adults who are not related to you (teachers, counselors, scout leaders, etc). These reference forms can be downloaded from the Teen Corps website (https://www.fpconservatory.org/education-programs/outreach-programs/teen-corps/).
If you are under 16, please be aware that you will have to provide a minor work permit to be able to participate in Teen Corps. Please contact your high school office about obtaining this required form.
Interviews for Teen Corps 2021 will take place over Zoom. These will be scheduled after the application deadline.
Application deadline is April 30th. No late applications will be accepted.
