We Are Cleveland Youth Landscaping

Cleveland Youth Landscaping began as a youth workforce development landscaping program in 2014. Today, we offer landscaping, property preservation, and renovation solutions for both residential and commercial properties in Northeast Ohio.

But we are not your average company. We are a nonprofit social enterprise that provides employment, hands-on job training, and job retention programming to young adults between the ages of 16 and 24. While completing work on real job sites, our youth serve as apprentices to professional contractors and building tradespeople while earning a living wage as they are learning valuable work ethics and job retention traits. Not only are our youth beautifying neighborhoods with some of Cleveland's best contractors, but they are also learning skills that will help them land a full-time job in an area of their interest, earn valuable job certifications, attend extended training at a trade school or local college, or even start their own business.
