Sustainability Education and Student Employment Internships
The Department of Sustianability provides opportunities for students to learn about resource conservation, the environment and waste diversion. Opportunites such as the DPS Energy Challenge and Hydration Campaigns are shared with interested classes and schools.
We partner with ACEConnect to provide paid internships for students to develop their job skills. Interns work in small groups alonside a DPS job coach to hone their skills and learn organic gardening. Since 2011, Garden of Youth and Green Team interns provide care to seven designated gardens across the district.
