Teen Environmental Education Mentorship (TEEM) is a paid environmental education internship and leadership program for San Francisco and Marin high school students.
Through TEEM, participants discover their inner strength as leaders, their ability to positively influence others, and the importance of diversity, community, and hands-on learning. TEEM interns gain firsthand knowledge about the field of environmental education through field trips, one-on-one mentorships with our professional educators, and by leading interactive activities with our elementary school participants.
Interns come from San Francisco and Marin counties with different levels of leadership and teaching experience. All TEEM participants share an interest in their environment, a willingness to try something new, and the desire to continue to grow as leaders. TEEM provides a unique opportunity to learn about neighboring communities and to collaborate with a diverse group of peers.
