More than ever there is a need to develop the next generation of conservation leaders. The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation is working hard to accomplish that goal. In April we are graduating our seventh class of students trained in conservation leadership, bringing the total number of program graduates to eighty-eight young men and women over the last seven years.
The Conservation Leadership Corps training program provides excellent training to students who are interested in conservation and environmental policy. The program has received excellent reviews from all of the students that have completed the program and also from the talented instructors that have volunteered to lead the training sessions. The training program focuses on leadership, policy communication and advocacy, policy analysis and development, and policy presentation skills. The training sessions have been consistently rated as 9+ on a scale of 10 by both the students and the teachers.
More information and the application can be found at this link https://wiwf.org/clc/. It provides the details, but I can assure you that next year’s program will be equally as good, taught by experienced natural resource professionals. All costs will be covered by the WWF and a small scholarship will be given to each student upon completion of the program. The application deadline is May 31st. The eighth year training will start the Fall Semester of 2020. The program is focused on current high school seniors and college students that have at least one additional year of college remaining.
