WE ARE MOVING TO A NEW OFFICE

Earth Team is moving its offices to the Berkeley Global Campus at the Richmond Field Station.  

We are already fixing the new office, in Building 155,  and we will be open for business July 11th, ready to launch our 2016-17 Sustainable Youth Internships at 8 East Bay public high schools.  You are welcome to visit us!

We are excited to have a larger space, but especially to share this amazing project with all our students:  the University of California Berkeley plans to build an international complex for higher education, research and technology not far from its main campus. The Berkeley Global Campus—a 5.5 million-square-foot project on 134 acres that the university owns in Richmond—would host academic programs from around the world and provide a living laboratory exploring innovative solutions to myriad human and environmental problems.

The project’s vision “is unabashedly bold,” UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said during a presentation to the Academic Senate late October. “It will be a new form of international hub where an exclusive group of some of the world’s leading universities and high-tech companies will work side by side with us in a campus setting.”

We are hoping that the Berkeley Global Campus project will inspire collaborations with other groups and offer our student-interns a new opportunity to be part of the solution to the environmental problems of our time!

THE NEXT STEP IN ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

The Sustainable Youth Internship program takes an immersive approach to environmental education, offering yearlong internships to 150 high school students at 10 Title 1 public schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving a total student population of 20,000 students.
The internships promote team-work and project-based learning, preparing students for college and environmental careers by connecting low-income youth with their local environments.  Student teams at each school use science and technology to research and address pressing issues in their campuses and communities, engaging their peers in protecting watersheds from litter and runoff pollution, restoring creek native habitats, preventing marine debris or fighting air pollution and its impact on human health.  Each school team is led by an Earth Team professional educator acting as a Campus Coordinator, working with teachers to connect in-class curriculum with afterschool service learning projects in collaboration with partner and community organizations.
