Impactful Climate Justice Opportunity for High School Students

Students receiving Sally Lowell Stewardship Award

Are you:

  • Alarmed about climate change and looking for solutions with impact?
  • A team of 3-12 high school students interested in working together on environmental action?
  • Interested in meeting a diverse array of peers, community members, and climate change experts working for similar goals?

It’s time to make a real difference in our world! Join a special semester-long experience with Drumlin Farm where you’ll plan and carry out your own climate action project in your community.

With Youth Leaders for Climate Justice, you’ll:

  • Learn about climate change and science and receive coaching from Mass Audubon experts
  • Make connections with other teen climate leaders
  • Collaborate with community change makers and local climate activists
  • Create and implement a unique action project in your own community
  • Attend a Climate Learning Intensive Program at Drumlin Farm on Saturday, January 26
  • Present your project to community and peer leaders at our Climate Summit on Saturday, May 18

Deadline to Apply was Friday, December 21!

→ Please Note: We are no longer accepting applications online. However, if your group is still interested, please call us at 781-259-2221.

You do not need to know what your project will be yet, all you need is an interest in the natural world and creating something special. We will guide you through the process of picking a project that fits your team.

1. Identify one adult sponsor to help with logistics and communications.

2. Submit the online application (one per team).

If accepted, there is a participation fee of $300 per team. Do not let funding stand in the way of participating. We will help you identify grant opportunities to help raise this money, or we have scholarships available.
