The GREEN Institute offers a comprehensive mentoring program for budding practitioners, and current undergraduate or graduate students. It’s our focus.
The Institute supports skill development for students; particularly in those areas where academia has failed to deliver the requisite knowledge and skills. As a Network of experts, we are able to offer a highly experienced group of people who mentor, advise, guide, and create opportunities for young practitioners, whether its overseas experiences or language acquisition and development.
Our mentoring programs are designed to provide early-career development skills for students; particularly innovations in project management skills—program planning and design, monitoring and evaluation, computer literacy, report writing skills, budgeting, staff management, research skills, grant writing, and knowledge of the funding and policy world—while encouraging cross-cultural competencies and language skills relevant to the field of environmental conflict.
We pursue all of our activities with a holistic understanding of international environmental work, specialized knowledge and skills, practical know-how, and political savvy; the skills often not taught in university settings.
In order to support education, outreach and interaction with local, regional, and international employers we partner with a wide range of institutions, communicate the value of their programs, and work with a large number of interns each year to prepare them for the next stage of their careers, and then help with placement.
We believe that interaction and participation are critical when delivering specialized training, so we take learning by doing to heart. If you’re looking for an interactive, creative, and imaginative training experience that builds on your academic knowledge, then call us, we’ll come up with something fun and extraordinarily creative to help you further develop your skills.
