The BEETLES Project at the Lawrence Hall of Science welcomes the next generation of racially, socio-economically, and culturally diverse leaders to help foster a more representative, responsive, and relevant environmental education (EE) and outdoor science experience for all communities.

BEETLES is now accepting applications to an Emerging Leaders cohort at the August 2019 Leadership Institute, seeking leaders who represent communities historically marginalized in environmental-related fields and who face systemic barriers to access the outdoors. Emerging Leaders will attend a BEETLES Leadership Institute alongside current organization leaders from EE and outdoor science organizations nationwide, all working to build individual and organizational capacity to increase diversity in leadership roles in the field of environmental education. Applications are due by April 22, 2019. Learn more and apply here:

BEETLES will offer Emerging Leaders a transportation stipend to attend the Institute and room and board during the Institute. BEETLES will also pay an honorarium to any Emerging Leaders who are not currently salaried at the time of the Institute.
