Help us raise $10,000 to send 50 students from Grant Union High School’s GEO Academy attend science and workforce development camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch
We’re partnering with Social Venture Partners of Sacramento to deliver an innovative environmental science, workforce development and career exploration camp for Grant Union High School’s GEO Academy students. Please help us raise $10,000 to reach our goal to send 50 students to camp this November.
Connecting Students to Careers and Internships
Together with our partners, we will directly connect the eleventh graders attending camp with water and forestry industry representatives. It will expose students to future careers where they’ll learn about internships and career pathways. Our partners are eager to hire for a variety of roles that support earning certificates to four-year degrees.
BUILDING MOMENTUM FOR THE FUTURE
The campers can also inspire other students to travel the same path and volunteer to be part of the GEO Academy program and this science and workforce development camp. This opportunity will be an unforgettable three-day educational camp where Sierra Nevada Journeys’ Grizzly Creek Ranch becomes an outdoor classroom. Help support getting these eleventh graders to this unique and inspiring camp happening on November 1 - 3, 2019.
About the GEO Academy at Grant Union high school and its Students
Grant Union High School is part of the Twin Rivers Unified School District and the GEO Environmental Science and Design Academy teaches youth how to create healthy and sustainable communities.
The Academy is a longstanding program that gives students the chance to work on specific projects and fulfill internships in horticulture, agriculture and forestry. The career development camp at Sierra Nevada Journeys will expand the opportunities in water and environmental sectors.
For many of these students, the chance to aspire to a science-based or successful career can be difficult because 100 percent of the students taking part in the GEO Academy are considered low-income students — based on their eligibility for the Free or Reduced school lunch program. They need help and support if they are to be productive citizens of their community and go beyond the limitations of their environment.
