We are excited about the launch of a new Youth Conservation Leadership Program at Audubon Vermont. 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. The program has three strategies: (1) structured, paid internship program; (2) student-led campus Audubon chapters; and (3) Vermont Youth Conservation Corps environmental literacy training module.
Across all three strategies, Audubon Vermont’s conservation leadership program is engaging with young adults during a time in their lives when they are making important decisions about their educational and career paths.
