The Sustainable Youth Internship program takes an immersive approach to environmental education, offering yearlong internships to 150 high school students at 10 Title 1 public schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving a total student population of 20,000 students.
The internships promote team-work and project-based learning, preparing students for college and environmental careers by connecting low-income youth with their local environments.  Student teams at each school use science and technology to research and address pressing issues in their campuses and communities, engaging their peers in protecting watersheds from litter and runoff pollution, restoring creek native habitats, preventing marine debris or fighting air pollution and its impact on human health.  Each school team is led by an Earth Team professional educator acting as a Campus Coordinator, working with teachers to connect in-class curriculum with afterschool service learning projects in collaboration with partner and community organizations.
