EcoMentors is an innovative and dynamic program which matches high school students with elementary school classes or environmental clubs to assist in teaching environmental education. By working together, both groups of students can turn their ideas into action by participating in relevant environmental activities in their community and explore and express their ideas and viewpoints with regard to human-environmental interactions.
By participating in ecoMentors, everybody wins. High school students gain valuable work experience, explore their career interests and fulfill their co-op course requirements; elementary students benefit from having an energetic, enthusiastic mentor to provide guidance, input and assistance in their exploration of environmental topics; teachers appreciate the assistance with their busy teaching schedule.
Sharp Canada is proud to be a sponsor of the EcoMentors program coordinated through Earth Day Canada. This program equips young Canadians with the knowledge and skills necessary to do their part in working towards a Sustainable Environment. For more information, visit www.earthday.ca
