Outreach Coordinator Position in the K12 Climate Essentials Program   

At Presidio Graduate School, our focus on sustainability and our mission and vision have led us to identify a keen need: effective climate change education strategies for K12 classroom instructors. Educating the next generation about climate change will be key to success in grappling with this issue, and doing so as rapidly as possible is essential. To address this need, we’ve developed an online professional development program that will empower K12 educators to incorporate climate change education into their classrooms swiftly, easily, and effectively.  

We believe that all elementary, middle, and high school students in all subject areas must be climate science literate, and our vision is that all students will leave high school with essential knowledge of climate change and what they can do to address it in a positive, hopeful manner.
