School Programs - Community Resources for Environmental Wellness: CREW

The CREW program is a leadership program designed to engage teens (8th grade- 12th grade) in service-learning projects with younger children.  CREW members will participate in a train the trainer model where they receive the tools necessary to execute a service learning project with younger children.  By participating in this training teen mentors will receive:
•    Ecology and sustainability training
•    Leadership and facilitation training
•    Curriculum resources and guidance
•    Teaching materials
•    Service Learning training
•    Continuing support from Tanglewood Staff
•    Ownership of planning and creating service learning projects
•    The ability to positively change their community

The training is a two or three day training held at Tanglewood or Blueberry Cove.  Smaller day-long trainings or trainings at an off-site facility are also a possibility.  By the end of the trainings the teens will have goals and plans in place to act as junior naturalists. CREW members will return to their community to work with a younger group of students to teach them about the natural world and ultimately support the younger students in implementing a sustainability service learning project.

Tanglewood staff would be available to assist in planning and implementation of the service project including logistics, media coverage, budget management, and establishing the mentee relationship.
