Stewards of the Future High School Program – Deadline: November 27
The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, is proud to introduce the second year of Stewards of the Future: an exciting high-school initiative. The province-wide program supports students in exploring their own communities, discovering and documenting unique attributes, identifying and researching key issues of concern, and investigating stewardship initiatives.
Stewards of the Future offers:
• Funding to cover costs such as transportation, supplies, and hiring Teachers on Call
• Activities designed to incorporate the curriculum while engaging students in outdoors, hands-on learning
• Guidance, Contacts, and Resources to facilitate completion of the program
• Recognition from the Lieutenant Governor including a certificate of completion, promotion of the project on our website, a chance to participate in a conference, and more.
Choose one of the optional, curriculum-linked activities provided in the Toolkit or create your own! Projects can be done individually, used as part of a unit, or you can choose to pursue Stewards of the Future projects through your own course curriculum.
Students are encouraged to take the initiative and design their own projects as well, with the goal being to promote healthy land with healthy people in healthy communities. A separate Student Passport is included to support individual students to get outdoors and visit parks, farms, community stewardship projects, resource-based industries such as mines or forestry operations, or local environmental projects.
Apply now until November 27th for funding for the 2016 program! Details and registration for the 2016 conference will be released in early 2016.
