Sustainable Long Island has an opportunity for you!
The High School Fellowship offers a paid opportunity for students to learn about community and regional planning, civic engagement, and sustainable development. Open to all juniors and seniors, Fellows will work with non-profit organization staff members on brownfield redevelopment, food equity projects, environmental justice initiatives, and efforts to involve their peers in local revitalization activities.
The High School Fellowship will take place over the course of the academic year, during which time, students will be immersed in learning about community planning and sustainability. As Fellows, students work together to develop strategies for raising awareness of important issues facing Long Island and work to engage their peers in addressing those challenges with positive solutions. This is a great opportunity for students who are looking to develop a regional network of peers and work together to make a difference within their community!
To apply, please send a short letter describing your interest in sustainability along with a resume detailing your academic and extracurricular activities to Arielle Miller, Grant Writer and Educational Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Fellowship is a full year commitment, starting in mid-September and running through July.
