Hidden Fields

Join PEI's Green Jobs Coordinator, Heather Spalding, to learn more about the Youth Engaged in Sustainable Systems (YESS) Program. 

The YESS Program model is grounded in collaboration between PEI, school districts, skill centers, and local natural resource organizations as part of the Career Connect Washington system. YESS high school participants earn summer school credit while building their job skills and exploring careers in natural resources. Over their five to six weeks in the program, students’ classroom time is paired with hands-on service activities at community partner sites. The program culminates as students present their restoration visions for a site they visited during their experience.  

If you are interested in learning more about this program and what it would take to bring it to your school or district, please join us on Monday, October 3, from 2 pm to 3 pm.
