GRUNT (Greenpaces Restoration & Urban Naturalist Team) is a volunteer environmental science and job skills program that connects youth to nature and environmental careers. During the programs, participants go on exciting environmental adventures, conduct real scientific research and discover the variety of natural resources career options. Our goal is to diversify the environmental field by getting urban teens interested in nature, and providing the job skills and work experiences they will need to be successful, and to encourage youth of all races, ethnicities, genders, religions and abilities to be allies.
Successful completion of this fun, FREE training leads to paid summer work with Nature Day Camp or the Youth Conservation Crew. Alumni are eligible to continue with paid internships and job opportunities until they are 25 years old.
Apply by February 17 at midnight.
The program meets Saturdays between March 18 and May 20.
Lunch, bus tickets and siracha are provided.
We also have a FREE environmental science, stewardship and job skills program for 8th graders! For more information, visit the Jr. GRUNT page!
