Frontline Program:

Frontline is a volunteer program for high school students, based around environmental leadership, stewardship, and outreach. Frontline operates from September to May, with meetings occurring approximately once a month on Saturdays. The meetings consist of workshops, job shadowing experiences, and stewardship activities. Frontline members are expected to become leaders and ambassadors for the environment by presenting to their peers, taking action, and acting as a liaison between CVC and their school or community. Each year, a youth-friendly outreach presentation is created and Frontline members are asked to deliver it to their peers or community. Frontline members are eligible for an EcoAmbassador, depending on their commitment to the program and outreach actions. Each year, the Frontline program focuses on a different local environmental theme to build leadership skills. This year’s theme is pollinators.
