Program Description

Students learn about re-foresting initiatives at the Fairmount Park Greenhouse (2017)

The SECO program has been modified to run virtually and continue to engage college students. A new topic relating to the environmental career field and entering the work force will be discussed each week with follow-up activities to connect discussions to the real world. After each 1-hour session, participants will be asked to complete a short assignment on their own. The objective of this program is to better prepare students and emerging professionals for their future career. Successful participants who attend each session and complete all the required materials will receive a certificate of completion.
