The pool of young people entering green jobs is not sufficient to meet demand for tomorrow’s workforce. Green careers include foresters, loggers, arborists, wildlife biologists, park rangers, green building designers and builders, energy auditors, farmers and ranchers, solar engineers, and so much more. We are working to leverage the connections to green careers across our environmental education curriculum and developing pathways to green careers by exposing young people to nature and the array of green jobs opportunities.
Our mentorship program in Canada connects young people directly to forest, conservation and parks sector professionals. By helping youth explore the diversity of careers in the forest, conservation, and sustainability sectors, we are helping to build the next generation of future forest leaders across North America.
