The Student Global Ambassador Program (SGAP Leaders), a nonprofit located in Rockville, Maryland with offices in Montclair, NJ is looking for a self-assured, fully engaged facilitator to lead small group discussions (3-5 students) with middle or high school students about SGAP Leaders climate change/sustainability curriculum and workshops.

Our in-person and virtual workshops, tours and speaker series provide a vehicle for students to develop college and career readiness skills. Students choose the themes for our program which ranges from climate change, teen suicide and mental wellness, to human trafficking (to name a few).
