Description of Frontline Program:

Any high school student can become a Frontline member! During the school year Frontline members participate in workshops, job shadowing experiences, and stewardship activities. Frontliners act as a liaison between CVC and their school or community groups. We meet approximately once a month, usually on Saturdays. The more sessions you attend, the more volunteer hours you earn!

The Frontline program is based around environmental leadership, stewardship, and sharing important CVC and environmental concepts. Each year, we focus on a different environmental theme to build environmental leadership skills. Past themes include water quality, migratory birds and their habitats, lost rivers, and stream restoration.

  • Act as an environmental leader within your school and wider community
  • Commit to attending workshops and experiences over the course of the school year
