The Youth Conservation Leadership Program at Audubon Vermont provides paid learning opportunities for young adults including paid, work-based learning programs for high school students, internships for college-aged students in environmental education, conservation, and policy, and year-long service positions. We are engaging with young adults during a time in their lives when they are making important decisions about their educational and career paths. We hope this program helps to inspire and support the next generation of conservationists.
Supported in part by a generous Maggie Walker Incentive Fund Grant, the program will train the next generation of conservation leaders with the tools to tackle environmental challenges.
