Youth Fellows

As part of our ongoing efforts to foster student leadership, EarthGen launched a new Youth Fellowship program in the Fall of 2022.

This program provides paid opportunities to high school students who are passionate about climate justice and wish to expand their knowledge on this critical issue. After a thoughtful selection process, fellows work closely with EarthGen staff and partners to develop a research project that focuses on the current state of climate change education. Throughout the four-month program, fellows receive tailored guidance and support to design and implement their projects, culminating in a final product and presentation to share their findings with a wide audience.

We are pleased to welcome our first fellows Deja, Charles, and Jwan, three exceptional high school students who will partner with us as we continue to support youth leadership.

Stay tuned throughout the year for updates from our fellows!
