By far one of my favorite experiences while in college was my summer internships with the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP). Through DDCSP I met people of color from around the country who were also passionate about social change and conservation.
The IslandWood Graduate Program in Education for Environment and Community is a 10-month immersive residency in justice-oriented environmental education; experiential, student-centered learning; and culturally-responsive teaching and curriculum development.
Imagine a place.
In that place, there are trees that Pachamama created and many creatures that roam on the land. Deer, lombrisas, newts, and human people all exist together in peace. The birds sing their praises and all you can do is sit in the silence and soak it all in.
