Did you know that there are million acres of land in the US that you own?! But whose lands are they really? How is environmental justice intertwined with social justice? And what can you do to make an impact and support your communities?
CorpsTHAT’s Summer Stewardship Program will give you the skills and knowledge to be better able to answer these questions and support your own local environment and community. Learn how to step up and be an active citizen in the US as well as how to apply, interview and work for a government agency or environmental organization that works on these lands as a park ranger, naturalist, conservationist or historian.
Lessons will be through a mix of in class virtual meetings and independent activities and postings through our online classroom platform. Each week, participants will take part in citizen science projects, lesson based activities, group discussions and have access to ask questions of Deaf outdoor professionals. This program focuses on integrating science and technology, job ready skills, environmental conservation and social justice activism.
**Due to COVID-19, this summer we are offering our Stewardship Program virtually. While we would rather be in the outdoors connecting youth with nature, conservation and job opportunities we are excited to be able to reach more high school aged youth through this online platform.
We, at CorpsTHAT, understand that everyone’s financial situation is different.
