I love supporting HBCU students any way I can, today I am sharing one of the most interesting internship programs I have seen for HBCU students. Be sure to share this opportunity with all the students you know!
Heritage Tourism Internships for HBCU Students
The Greening Youth Foundation’s (GYF) mission is to work with diverse, underserved and underrepresented children, youth and young adults in an effort to develop and nurture enthusiastic and responsible environmental stewards. GYF’s cultural based environmental education programing engages children from local communities and exposes them to healthy lifestyle choices in order to create an overall healthy community. GYF believes that youth and young adults from diverse backgrounds can greatly benefit from the career opportunities presented within the state and federal land management sectors. Accordingly, GYF continues to develop and strengthen partnerships with land management agencies to provide service and internship opportunities for youth and young adults thereby creating pathways to conservation careers.
The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship (HBCUI) program is designed to connect current HBCU students and recent grads to National Park Service units in sectors throughout the agency to get involved in protecting the natural and cultural resources in their communities. The program enhances understanding and appreciation of African – American’ important contributions to the United States development. Participants will also gain exposure to the gamut of career opportunities in the National Park Service related to public land management.
