Become a “Champion” for urban youth today! Volunteer to join our group of trained Eagle Eye Champions and engage urban youth in nature through our fun and effective programs. With your help, more young people can experience the joys and benefits of nature regardless of geography, race, ethnicity and income.
What is a Champion?
Champions are individuals who volunteer with Eagle Eye for the specific purpose of organizing Learn About Programs : Learn About Forest™, Learn About Water and Learn About Agriculture. These program organizers are “champions” of environmental protection and underserved urban youth. Eagle Eye Champions bring together youth organizations, natural resource professionals and natural sites to provide urban youth from low-income communities with unique first-time experiences in nature. Eagle Eye Institute provides Champions with materials, training and other needed support to organize successful programs in communities all over the United States.
Who can be a Champion?
Any person 18 or older who aligns with Eagle Eye’s mission and wants to help expand outdoor, exploratory science programming for underserved urban youth in their local community, is welcome to become a Champion.
