Thank you for applying to be our new partner in the Teen Eco Apprenticeship program.
This is a free week-long intensive program where teens (age 13-17) learn more about their Regional Parks through environmental education, outdoor recreation, service learning and leadership development. The Park District provides transportation, gear, food, and staff to lead the program. We also provide a $100 stipend to youth who successfully complete the program. We ask our community partners to recruit 20 teens who are passionate about the environment yet can’t afford or access outdoor opportunities.
We are currently seeking a new community partner in the Fremont/Union City/Newark/Hayward area who will work with us to promote, recruit, and guide 20 youth through this opportunity, which will take place July 31st to August 4th, 2017. We will hope to continue the partnership for many years after that.
