CBF-PA Seeks Pennsylvania High School Students For Environmental Leadership Program; Online Briefing May 27

On May 19, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is holding an online meeting for high school students interested in joining CBF’s Student Leadership Program
With schools shuttered and many extracurricular activities cancelled, virtual meetings are an opportunity for high schoolers from across Pennsylvania to gain valuable experience as stewards of the environment.
CBF staff and other experts support student leaders in increasing their knowledge about the environment and leadership skills. Student leaders go on to advance advocacy and awareness and implement projects in their local communities that benefit the environment.
“Pennsylvania student leaders have planted hundreds of native trees, created environmental action clubs at their schools, and led the charge to designate the Eastern Hellbender as the official state amphibian, raising awareness of clean water issues here in the Commonwealth,” said Kassie Fenn, CBF Pennsylvania Student Leadership and Education Coordinator. “The time is perfect for high schoolers to join us in an online meeting to learn more about how they can make an impactful and lasting difference.
The free program is open to all students entering 9th through 12th grade who live in the Pennsylvania portion of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
Online Briefing
Students interested in joining the program can attend an online New Student Leader Orientation on Wednesday, May 27, from 4 to 5 p.m.
Students in Pennsylvania interested in joining the program should contact Kassie Fenn by sending an email to: KFenn@cbf.org for meeting details. 
For more information, students and parents can visit CBF’s Student Leadership Program webpage.
