We are taking environmental education to where it needs to be: into the wild!
The In8 Earth Internship Program is designed in collaboration with Beyond 8 to build new roles among young people to care for the planet. We do this by providing a space for them to identify and enhance their interests, and develop working knowledge and skills that are needed to further strengthen the environmental conservation movement.
The duration of the internships is tailored according to the availability of the interns' time and interests, and the requirement of the host organization that works in the space of environment, conservation and sustainability. It can range anywhere between 1 – 6 months. YouCAN serves as a catalyst to identify potential Earth interns, connects them with grassroots organizations, and mentors them to elevate their potential for change.
The health of our planet depends on an environmentally conscious and action-oriented generation. We need to build new roles among citizens in all communities to make this happen. In this way, we can improve the health of our planet, not only for us but all life forms that share the space with us.
