HEN Ambassador Program

Ever feel like there’s something more that you can be doing to stop climate change? Are you a student at a Halton secondary school?

We’re looking for eager individuals to be selected to be the HEN Ambassador for their school/community. Not only will you be involved in environmental audits and working with non-profit environmental organizations, you’ll be hosting school-wide events and campaigns to raise awareness of our impact on the planet.

HEN Ambassadors will be asked to complete the following four activities within their school:

  1. Assess: Complete and submit an Eco-Audit for your school
  2. Create Awareness: Host a screening of the hit documentary "Before the Flood"
  3. Activate: Launch a school-wide campaign or initiative for topic of your choice
  4. Move Forward: Create a proposal for a project to improve your schools Eco-Score

Throughout the duration of the program, you will receive:

  • Opportunity to participate in workshops, tours, and community events
  • Free tickets to local HEN events
  • About 25-40 community service hours (depending on your projects)
  • Support and references from Halton Environmental Network coordinators, including Halton Green Screens and Greening Sacred Spaces, as well as introductions to local environmental groups that can assist with projects
  • Opportunity to participate in 2017 WE Day
  • A Certificate of Environmental Excellence (upon completion of all components)

At the end of the 2016/2017 school year, all Ambassadors will be invited to share their accomplishments and to pitch their proposals to prominent members in the community.
