Thank you everyone! Please include me in follow up communication- shargrov@stac.edu

I like the fact that city kids are getting this opportunity for internships, etc. Is there a way to let kids out in the rural towns know about these jobs and opportunities? It seems like so many rural youth have no idea about these career options in green collar jobs.

There is an education group at my local Climate Reality Chapter who would be VERY interested in collaborating. Thinking Ashokan Center would be interested as well.
