EMPOWERING STUDENTS FOR SUSTAINABLE FOREST STEWARDSHIP AND CLIMATE ACTION.
The Forest Resilience Ambassador Program, spearheaded by the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FoundationCCC) and the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s Good Jobs Challenge, is designed to educate and empower students and community members about sustainable forestry management and fire safety. Ambassadors play a key role in community outreach and engagement, promoting awareness about forestry and fire safety degrees and training programs while researching and addressing barriers to entry and completion.
They also actively contribute to our mission of forest resilience and climate change mitigation, making a significant impact in shaping a sustainable future. The program serves as an excellent professional development and leadership platform, where student ambassadors receive a stipend for their contributions and ongoing coaching and support.
