A PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS TO TAKE ACTION ABOUT WATER CONSERVATION
Have you ever wanted to gain more experience as a steward and leader within your community? In our new Groundwater Guardians: Youth Volunteer Cohort program, students from 6th-12th grade will work with our educators to develop a community action project related to groundwater and volunteer at Waterwise Community Center events! Joining our cohort means you will be an ambassador for the Chino Groundwater Basin and the Waterwise Community Center, helping to increase knowledge about our groundwater and finding solutions to problems that our water faces every day! Each of our Ambassadors will also receive community service hours and a scholarship of $250 for their contributions.
Requirements for the cohort include attending 9 2-hr meetings, volunteering for at least 2 Waterwise Community Center events, and presenting about your project at our Open House on the evening of March 17.
This cohort program is free and will begin in the fall and finish around March of 2022. Limited to 6th-12th grade students living and/or going to school within our Service Area.
Applications for the 2021-22 Groundwater Guardians: Youth Volunteer Cohort are now closed. If you’d like to be notified when applications for future Groundwater Guardian Youth Cohorts open, please complete this interest form.
