This fellowship brings together teachers from all around the Midland area. Teacher led teams work together to create an engaging project centered around sustainability. Students will work focus on a real environmental problem within their community and work to form solutions. Fellows have the opportunity to network with local environmental organizations and form long-lasting connections to use within their classrooms.
In addition to supporting our teachers throughout their initial Fellowship year, we also provide them with ongoing benefits, such as:
Access to professional development opportunities and resources
Subscription to DITF Newsletter: Teaching Towards Sustainability, which highlights grant opportunities and teaching resources on a monthly basis
Mentorship and networking opportunities with other Fellows
Eligibility for additional funding to continue place-based sustainability work
Opportunities to pilot new programs and resources
