LINK UP Series Launch

November 2, 2023

FREE Series

This special new program fosters intergenerational mentorship and ladders to success for BIPOC youth in the environmental sciences

The LINK UP program is a pioneering initiative designed to foster diversity and inclusion in the environmental field by connecting BIPOC youth with seasoned experts. Through intergenerational mentorship, the program aims to empower young individuals from underrepresented backgrounds to pursue careers in the environmental sector while providing valuable guidance in their career journeys. The program carefully pairs BIPOC students with experts from diverse environmental backgrounds who possess extensive knowledge in their respective fields, providing not only education and support, but also invaluable representation of BIPOC success in the environmental field.

Join us to participate in activities guided by experts, like learning how to take water quality samples, measure pollutants, interpret data, and more! The Ryan Lab will be your home station and networking hub along with Paradise Creek Nature Park, another campus of the Elizabeth River Project.

To learn more or sign up as a mentor or mentee, contact Jamie Melvin, Engagement Coordinator: jmelvin@elizabethriver.org.
