Looking to hire for the summer? Students in the Sustainable Agriculture Green Energy (SAGE) Program at Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice in Englewood are ready to work. “Our school has a virtual job board and a high percentage of students over the age of 18,” explains Scott Wallace, SAGE facilitator.

Students in the SAGE program gain real-world skills with hands-on learning in horticulture, animal science, and more. The program has been affiliated with the Landscape Career Pathways program for about five years, with the first two students hired into the landscape industry after their 2018 graduation.

Restrictions during the pandemic limited the program in the past year, but students have, in recent weeks, earned science credit while learning about landscape irrigation and planting seedlings in the greenhouse.

Landscape companies interested in posting open positions to the virtual job board can contact Wallace ([email protected]) or Heather Powers ([email protected]), who manages the job board for the school.
