Our Mentorship for Sustainability Program applications are open yearlong. Open to college and high school students, the program strives to involve youth in sustainability efforts and equip them with skills and knowledge that will help them in their academic and professional journeys, preparing them for a green future.
There are opportunities to plan and implement activities related to stream/wetland restoration, lobbying, environmental justice, diversifying sustainability, pollinator gardens, and other topics.
