wet What is the Pine Jog Fellowship?

The Pine Jog Fellowship: Cultivating Community Involvement and Environmental Leadership is an innovative 3-semester program that aims to develop a cadre of young leaders who are knowledgeable about various environmental issues impacting South Florida and who understand the social, environmental and economic interrelationships that are critical to addressing such issues. After exploring the major environmental issues impacting South Florida, Fellows make a difference in their local community through environmental service learning and by serving as mentors to school-aged youth.

Successful completion of each semester earns Fellows 3 credits (9 credits total)
