youth education / teen internships
Lowline Young Ambassadors ProgramThe Young Ambassadors Program was an innovative education and leadership development program focused on experiential learning and community engagement. Participating teens explored a wide range of STEAM careers from architecture to horticulture, and supported the Lowline’s broader efforts to care for and connect people to community green spaces. Following their 6-month paid internship, Young Ambassadors made ripple effects in the community — developing their own neighborhood greening projects, facilitating community engagement activities, and mentoring other neighborhood youth.
Meet the Young AmbassadorsWe are thrilled to welcome this year’s Young Ambassadors as an integral part of the Lowline team! This fall alone, our Young Ambassadors helped beautify neighborhood parks and gardens, learned about the latest in green building design and sustainable energy at NRGs headquarters, and explored careers in environmental sciences with the LES Ecology Center and BioBus. Meet the 2017-2018 class here.
