Join the 2020 ee360 Community EE Fellowship Program, NAAEE's ongoing initiative to support leadership and innovation in environmental education across the country! Comprised of a diverse and inspiring cadre of educators and community leaders working to address environmental issues at the local, state, and national level, the program is a part of ee360, an ambitious five-year effort to promote environmental education and prepare skilled leaders who are actively increasing environmental literacy for everyone.
The ee360 Community EE Fellowship provides an opportunity for innovative and creative environmental educators of all ages from across the United States to network and learn together while they make a difference in their respective communities. Fellows across North America work in communities of color, low-income urban neighborhoods, impoverished rural regions, and across multi-state regions to mitigate the impacts of environmental degradation on communities by helping them become more resilient to the pressing challenges.
The nine-month fellowship will provide ee360 Community EE Fellows with opportunities to learn, network, and share through face-to-face training, online professional development, and technical assistance. The fellowship will also lay a strong foundation for continued professional growth after the program ends.
