Teaching Jobs in Denver Metro Area Supported by Environmental Learning Funding

A new round of funding will help support teaching jobs in Denver metro area while preparing students for environmental jobs.

Earth Force, Inc. has received a $1,179,040 Learn and Serve America grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service. The funding will be used to increase student academic achievement and civic engagement through community collaboration in low-income and rural areas.

The funding will help Earth Force provide service-learning opportunities to about 2,000 participants in the Northeast Denver Youth Engagement Zone. The program teaches math and science skills to middle and high school students who want to pursue careers that address the community's environmental changes.

NDYEZ will work with YouthBiz and Redline to build green learning labs at three local schools and teach math and science by creating urban gardens. Other partners include Metro Volunteers, GrowHaus, Community College of Denver, and Denver Urban Gardens.

These organizations will provide leadership training and support for teachers; access to healthy food, classes and mentoring for students; and after-school and out-of-school programs meant to reinforce classroom learning and job skill training.

"Youth are natural innovators and leaders, and these grants will give them the tools they need to learn inside and outside the classroom," CNCS CEO Patrick A. Corvington said. "We are excited to support partnerships of community institutions that will not only help youth perform well in school, but that will also strengthen connections to higher education."

The CNCS received a total of 99 applications, and only six grants were awarded, with Earth Force receiving the largest grant. The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships provided grant-writing assistance on Earth Force's application.
