We created paid internships to allow our students to gain hands-on experiences working with three local outdoor education organizations.
Our students rotated through each site, gaining valuable training while offering much needed assistance.
We worked to establish long-term relationships with the educational organizations, both training future teachers, and providing assistance with their outreach.
Our students have been offered jobs by these organizations and by the school divisions visiting.
Our students report a significant increase in knowledge and skills, and a deeper appreciation of the efforts needed to provide hands-on experiences for schoolchildren. We plan to continue these collaborations into the future.
