From EarthTeam Participant to Staff

Ilse Villacorta’s introduction to the environmental world began on the day she walked into an AP Environmental Science class and saw a small group of students led by an impassioned teacher. She saw that although the group didn’t have an army of people, they were still able to accomplish much and decided she wanted become a part of that. She became deeply involved in the Sierra Student Coalition at Alameda High School and even became the club president by her senior year.
