With the end of the school year quickly approaching, high school students often find themselves wondering about their next steps in life, particularly what careers they are interested in. On Monday, Leuzinger High School students received guidance in green careers from Grades of Green! Two Grades of Green Team Members with two very different job backgrounds spoke about how they discovered their strengths and career values as well as how they found their way to Grades of Green. Although not all of these students will end up with an environmental career, it is our hope that environmental protection becomes second-nature in their minds and that they are inspired and empowered to care for the environment wherever life takes them!
