Chesapeake Bay Foundation Seeks Students for Summer Education Program

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) 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, these virtual meetings are an opportunity for high schoolers from across Maryland to gain valuable experience as stewards of the environment.

CBF staff and other experts support these 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.

“We work side by side with students, empowering them to tackle issues meaningful to them. Student leaders in Maryland have created bioswales and rain gardens, met with state legislators about policy, and promoted water bottle refill stations at school,” said Megan Fink, CBF Maryland Student Leadership Coordinator. “Now is a great time for high schoolers to join us and start making a difference in their communities.”

The program is open to all students entering 9th through 12th grade who live in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay watershed, including Maryland’s Eastern Shore, the Baltimore area, Southern Maryland, and Western Maryland. Students interested in joining the program can attend an online New Student Leader Orientation on Wednesday, May 27, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Students in Maryland interested in joining the program should contact Megan Fink at mfink@cbf.org for meeting details. For more information, students and parents can visit www.cbf.org/studentleadership.
