EnviroLeaders | Sonoma Ecology Center

Become an EnviroLeader!

The EnviroLeaders program is available to Sonoma Valley teens between the ages of 14 to 18 and offers hands-on education in the fields of sustainable agriculture and restoration.

The EnviroLeaders program provides Sonoma Valley teens with the opportunity to gain essential job and life skills through practical environmentally focused training. There will be an emphasis on sustainable agriculture, community building and park stewardship over a semester long employment program.

EnviroLeaders are mentored by Sonoma Ecology Center educators and other professionals in the environmental field. They meet twice a week, at the Sonoma Garden Park and other sites around the Valley. EnviroLeaders are paid $12/hour for their work too!

We’re looking for students who are good team players, have strong communication skills, are willing to learn and have an interest in working on sustainable communities and climate change. Bilingual students are encouraged to apply!
