What You'll Get
Limited work experience can present a great barrier to employment for Chicagoans who have spent time outside of the workforce. Cleanslate Chicago, a social enterprise of The Cara Program, empowers those transitioning into employment from a variety of circumstances with an opportunity to gain valuable work experience, helping them to acquire transitional employment.
Cleanslate offers paid positions in landscaping and other outdoor work, in combination with intensive job training that includes extensive supervisor feedback. Cleanslate interns clean up public outdoor spaces such as children's parks and church gardens, restore uninhabited homes, and maintain private-residence lawns, all with the ultimate goal of broader community renewal.
Join G-Team and help support Chicagoans seeking transitional employment: for $40, you get four man-hours of landscaping services from Cleanslate (up to an $80 value). In up to four hours of yard work, Cleanslate interns can mow, rake, weed, clear areas with a leaf blower, trim trees and bushes, and remove nonhazardous debris. Cleanslate can serve any home within Chicago's city limits and will provide the lawn care equipment. This deal applies to man-hours, meaning if two people show up to perform this service, they will each work two hours, totaling in four man-hours.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
