STEM Career Opportunities Presented to Earth Team
Earth Team is not just committed to its environmental projects, but also to developing the next generation of green leaders. Be it through the implementation of service learning projects that give inters the hard skills they need to succeed, public speaking and community engagement opportunities that provide interns with the soft skills they need to succeed, or actually presenting them with opportunities after Earth Team that gives the chance to succeed.
On March 15, 2018, Shelby Sugierski of Rising Sun, and Rona Zollinger of MUSD, joined Earth Team to present to the group about an upcoming summer job opportunity as an energy specialist with Rising Sun and an upcoming career fair presented by MUSD. Interns were extremely engaged, asking questions and showing real interest in the possibility of working in the environmental field for the summer. When the presentation was over, several interns stuck around to ask follow up questions and receive applications. It is a rewarding site to see watching these young people make environmentalism a significant part of their lives and Earth Team strives to bridge the gap into STEM careers or education after graduation.
