Research of youth environmental activism in the San Diego region
By Charlie Schooner, a high school senior from High Tech High International, and new Environmental Center of San Diego intern,
In May 2022, the Environmental Center of San Diego welcomed a new intern, Charlie Schooner, a high school senior from High Tech High International. A public charter school in Point Loma that focuses on project-based learning, High Tech High International connects local organizations with students as part of its 12th grade internship program. Charlie Schooner was a great match for ECOSD based on his plans to major in City and Regional Planning at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California starting with the fall 2022 semester.
Charlie brought a fresh perspective to ECOSD and, under the supervision of Board of Directors member Marie Brown, he helped to research youth environmental activism in the San Diego region. The data collected through this internship research revealed that 55 student-led local environmental high school clubs exist. Click here to see Charlie’s entire report. ECOSD is thankful for the research conducted by Charlie Schooner.
