TWIG volunteers work alongside adult instructors and volunteers to help lead garden-based activities for children ages 5-12 in our Summer Camp Program or joining one of our Horticulture crews for hands-on experience. TWIGs spend most of their time outdoors, behind-the-scenes with Red Butte Garden staff, Summer Camp kids, and Garden guests. Additionally, TWIGs learn how to be environmental educators as they gain experience planning and teaching youth programs on a variety of subjects including but not limited to: botany, horticulture, environmentalism, and more. TWIGs will also gain valuable job skills including teamwork, communication, public speaking, and responsibility.
