Exciting New Program Gives Students Opportunity and Resources to Help Our Local Environment
Insights is excited to be partnering with two local high schools and several environmental organizations on a two-year mission to build a strong environmentally conscious future for the border region by providing young community members with skills and experiences to promote a new generation of conservational awareness; thanks to $100,000 in grant funding from the EPA.
Through spring 2022, supported by the environmental organizations, Environmental Stewardship Clubs (ECS) at each high school (Cathedral and Horizon High Schools) will receive $10,000 to accomplish a hands-on student-led restoration project that solves a community environmental issue. This leadership program will also give students and teachers funding and opportunities for building networking relationships and incorporating several field trips into their curriculum, while their classroom education is enhanced with workshops developed and provided by environmental professionals.
We are proud to empower students with ecological compassion to make a difference for the planet we all call home.
Environmental educator resources
As a part of our effort to provide environmental educators from the El Paso region local and relevant educational resources, Insights and our SESI partners have developed TEKS aligned curriculum through a series of virtual workshops and virtual field trips.
