The CU Environmental Center’s long-standing environmental education program has operated for 20 years as “Earth Education” volunteer program and “Teach for Sustainability” internship program. The program successfully matched undergraduate students with local teachers that are interested in implementing environmental and natural science education into their classroom and provided applied experience and training to hundreds of students- many of whom went on to education careers.
Currently, we are not offering the program. If you are a student interested in gaining intern or volunteer experience, consider these resources.
