Our STRAW team is excited to pilot a program this summer where we work with older, motivated local community college students! STRAW’s Community College Conservation Summer Volunteer Program is an opportunity for community college students to be part of local conservation efforts, and learn more about environmental career pathways through an 8 week program. We will meet twice a week beginning June 17, 2019 through August 9, 2019. Each week will include one Field Day and one Seminar Day.
Please submit the information below. This application will close at 11:59 p.m. Sunday June 9th, 2019. Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an e-mail by Alba Estrada López to schedule an interview to better understand your interests in our program.
For any questions or needed clarifications, please contact STRAW Conservation Educator, Alba Estrada López at email@example.com. On behalf of the STRAW team, thank you for your interest and we look forward to working and learning with you this summer!
Seminar Days will focus on learning different environmental field career pathways such as environmental education, conservation biology, restoration science, urban planning, wildlife monitoring and conservation and much more. Seminar days will also emphasize creating tools and structures for students to envision and accomplish their academic and professional goals; taking time to learn about topics such as resume building, transferring to four year institutions, and navigating internship, undergraduate and graduate programs. A portion of the weekly seminar will be used to prepare and orient volunteers for their upcoming field day. Seminar Days are predicted to be from 9 am - 12:30 pm in Point Blue’s headquarters in Petaluma, CA.
