All Westford Academy students are encouraged to join the Westford Academy Mentor Program and have fun while gaining hands-on volunteer experience. Our Westford Academy Mentorship program trains a group of high school volunteers to become responsible for various aspects of the Farmers Market and other Sustainable Westford events. These student volunteers develop strong communication, teamwork, and leadership skills. Throughout the year, they can choose to help manage the Westford Farmers Market, Upcycle It!, the Winter Series and other Sustainable Westford events. Some of our alumni continue to study environmental issues in college and beyond. Moreover, because they learn to give back to the community at a young age, they will likely remain involved in the community well into their adult lives.
Recently the WA Mentor program received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition ‘for the personal contribution, inspiring dedication and student civic leadership’ from Senator Niki Tsongas.
