Ulster County youth ages 12-18 are encouraged to apply to the ISAT Program which will begin in October and run through the end of 2019. Participant will gain valuable public speaking experience and add to their knowledge of local threats to the environment.
The goals of the program are to train teens to conduct education and outreach programs on invasive species. We plan to accomplish this by holding three training sessions which includes the already scheduled October 27th date at the Catskill Interpretive Center from 10am-2pm. We will assist you in planning and preparing for the outreach portion of the program, with the goals of presenting to County Legislators, and to public audiences at places like schools, local events and the Ulster County Fair.
We are partnering with CCE Columbia/Green to run this program, with each county recruiting 3 youth. We will be organizing and implementing the trainings in the local area with some involvement by .
There is a $250 stipend award for participants who complete the program. Contact 4-H Educator Matt Helffrich at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit the below application or for more information.
Youth need not be enrolled in 4-H, but will be enrolled when accepted to the program.
