SUSTAINABLE VOCATIONS

COMING IN 2017


Sustainable Vocations

Course Description

Sustainable Vocations prepares youth (ages 15 – 24) for diverse leadership roles that integrate sustainability into their lives and communities. This pioneering program offers youth the unique, hands-on opportunity to study green design strategies and technologies, develop leadership and vocational skills, and experience living in a sustainable community. Students earn an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification and graduate with the practical skills to enhance their employment opportunities and life path – all while helping to create a more sustainable future for us all.

Sustainable Vocations is offered as an intensive, 3-week program in a nature-based setting. These unique program features create a community framework in which youth are supported and experience the inspirational strength of collective action. This community setting also enables students to further explore the nature of relationships and how they reside at the core of sustainability. In addition to the acquired skills and knowledge, this detachment from familiarity and immersion into a different lifestyle alone can be a life-changing experience for youth.
