EDI Internship Development, Student Leadership Coordinator
Risa and Elisha are collaborating on developing an EDI Internship (Equity, Diversity & Inclusion). They are both serving as Project Managers through a joint project with World Relief Seattle and Sustainability Ambassadors. This internship is a paid, 12-month, leadership development internship focused on youth engagement in the Paradise Parking Plots Community Garden, the development of a Kent School District Team of Sustainability Ambassadors, support for problem-based curriculum design in collaboration with the Green Duwamish Teacher Fellows Program, and collective impact storytelling to stakeholders and policymakers. Part of the work will be developing a curriculum for a Summer Camp designed to support the academic and emotional learning needs of refugee and immigrant youth in grades K-8.
