This leadership program is an opportunity for high school students to train as outdoor educators and environmental leaders.
Canopy is an environmental nonprofit that plants and cares for trees where people need them the most. Not only do we plant trees, but we teach people of all ages about why they are important to human and ecosystem health.
In the Junior Forester Leadership Program, we train high school students to do the teaching!
Through the spring, the Junior Forester Leaders (JFLs) work with 3rd-grade students, the “Junior Foresters”, in the after-school programs at the Belle Haven School in Menlo Park and the Los Robles School in East Palo Alto. JFLs teach the Junior Foresters about tree structure and function, plant growth and health, and the human impacts on the environment, all while planting and caring for trees on campus.
This is a wonderful opportunity for JFLs to build their confidence as educators, leaders, and stewards of the environment!
