Mentorship for Sustainability
Together for Nature is committed to increasing the participation, input, and impact of youth in our local sustainability efforts.
Together for Nature and Equity and Sustainability Consulting offer a Mentorship for Sustainability Program open to high school and college students.
The program is focused on involving youth in local sustainability efforts and equipping them with skills and knowledge that will help them in their academic and professional journeys, preparing them for a green future.
Mentees will be paired up with a local sustainability leader that will mentor them in connecting to and leading sustainability change.
The program provides students with mentoring and skill development through educational, scientific, activist, and networking opportunities.
We have mentors that are working on stream/wetland restoration, lobbying, environmental justice, diversifying sustainability, pollinator gardens, and other topics.
At the end of the experience, mentees are welcome to join Together for Nature in a deeper capacity as an official member and continue meaningful work as a volunteer.
