Challenge

In today's economy it is difficult for college level students to gain valuable job experience in the field of environmental education. Carpenter Nature Center will offer our highly respected, 12-week, environmental education internships for four college-level students. The four interns have the opportunity to work alongside professional naturalists, actively engaging over 7,000 youth with the natural world. The interns, the students and the community all benefit from this program.

Solution

Four interns will each receive 12 weeks of environmental education training. Each intern will observe professional naturalists teach school groups, and will then have experience actually teaching students with coaching from the naturalists.

Long-Term Impact

Interns gain valuable experience to help acquire jobs. The hands-on training will also make them better teachers, extending their impact as they connect generations of youth with the natural world, and inspire future environmental stewards.
