Schuylkill Environmental Career Opportunities (SECO) 

Schuylkill ECO for High School Students

Weekdays September-May

This career development program orients students to not only the Schuylkill River Watershed, but also the different environmental partners working together within it. Students visit a variety of locations close to their school including State, Federal, Local, and Non-profit organizations as well as privately owned sustainable businesses to learn about different careers and career paths available to them in their area. This is a career-oriented program that fosters interest in environmental and sustainability fields, and helps students network with field professionals. Schuylkill ECO is available to high school classrooms within the Schuylkill River Heritage Area/Watershed.  If you’re not sure your group location is within the heritage area then click the button below.
