Field Experience Program
G.E.M. Environmental, in partnership with Yavapai College, offers hands-on science education for underserved college students in Yavapai County. The program provides engaging activities, including field trips where students apply their knowledge, broaden perspectives on conservation, and gain insight into managing public lands.
Nationally, 90% of lower-income first generation college students do not graduate within 6 years of beginning college. If a student comes from a low-income background, is a first-generation student, or a minority, their chances decline dramatically. The Field Experience Program exemplifies our mission that science is for everyone, working with these goals in mind:
The Field Experience Program consists of a series of lectures and field trips where students apply their knowledge on-site. Students have the opportunity to develop relationships with industry professionals, foster academic achievement, and engage in integrated learning to increase their chances of landing a STEM job after graduation.
We are continuously working on expanding our relationships with local schools. If you are a school in Yavapai County and would like to work with us please email us here.
If you are a retired or current STEM teacher wanting to give back to the community, or a grad student with real world experience you'd like to share, consider becoming a lecturer. Click here to learn more and apply.
