See for Yourself - Green Career Pipeline

Your support helps the Urban Ecology Center’s Green Career Pipeline program develop urban leaders with the commitment and the capability to move our community towards a more sustainable future.

Our Green Career Pipeline program starts with school field trips and our Young Scientist Club after-school program, then leads to our High School Outdoor Leader program, which provides two years of job training and paid positions throughout the UEC. Afterwards, students can continue along the path with our paid summer intern programs.

This pathway prepares young people for future employment at organizations with an environmental focus, or even here at the UEC!

 Photos of kids in nature and this text: 82% of Young Scientist Club participants surveyed agreed that they learn new things about nature! From over 3,154 student visits, ages 6-12. 100% of surveyed High School Outdoor Leaders feel confident approaching new challenges after participating. FROM 17 2-YEAR INTERNS, 9TH & 10TH GRADES. 96% of UEC’s Summer Interns see themselved in a career of environmental work after participating. From 28 college-aged seasonal interns.
