Youth Employment & Training
Huneebee Project prioritizes enrolling and hiring youth with past or present child protective and/or foster care involvement in our Beekeepers in Residence training program and employment opportunities.
Beekeepers in Residence is an annual 4-month-training program that is held each spring. Youth between the ages of 15-23 from New Haven county with diverse interests contribute to the installation and maintenance of honey bee colonies as well as the planting of pollinator-friendly green spaces. At the same time, clinical social workers and mentors support our youth beekeepers in identifying transferrable job skills, resume development, using the creative arts as a catalyst for self-expression, and building body and emotional awareness through mindfulness practices.
