A new year of Earth Team’s Sustainable Youth Internship Program is underway for interns at Arroyo High School. This year interns are meeting remotely, using Zoom and other platforms to stay connected.
Ben McLaughlin will be taking the lead as Arroyo’s campus coordinator for this year. Though there will be some changes to the program as it will be fully virtual for the time being, the team still has big plans to make a positive impact.
This year Earth Team interns at Arroyo will be protecting and restoring urban watersheds and participating in various environmental and STEM projects. When it is safe to meet in-person, the team will continue their partnerships in the community and spread awareness about the impacts of litter on the environment.
In the first month of the program, interns have been involved in important discussions about the increasing threats of climate change, wildfires, and marine debris. Several students have even completed their own litter cleanups around San Lorenzo’s residential neighborhoods as part of California Coastal Cleanup Month!
The team looks forward to a year filled with learning, fun, and lasting connections.
