The CELF Green Careers speaker series provides students with opportunities to explore future career pathways in sustainability-minded and environmentally-focused professions. It reaches hundreds of students directly each year in schools and districts across New York, Texas, and beyond.
Schools were looking for an impactful way to embrace and amplify student interest in sustainability and environmentally-focused career pathways. In 2020, CELF answered the call by building a virtual program that offers a safe space for open dialogue between students and professionals. The program expanded to in-person events in 2022.
CELF works closely with educators to strategically align their needs with professionals who will provide career-connected applications to ongoing classroom projects and learning. Green Careers speakers bring career exposure and real-world relevance to the classroom, while meeting state and national learning standards. When students interact with professionals, they begin to see environmental literacy and learning as a journey where skills, inspiration, and experiences are accumulated along the way.
