“What do you need right now?” When asked authentically, it feels good to hear that question. It feels even better when the follow-up is, “I can help you with that.”
The Environmental Educators of North Carolina (EENC) has been checking in with our community regularly over the past year, and the list of needs is growing. We need your help to meet these needs!
By supporting EENC this spring, you will:
Offer educators a “pay what you can” option for our online justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion online course launching summer 2021, so that cost isn’t a barrier in their professional development.
Provide free facilitated community calls and monthly webinars for hundreds of educators who tune in live or watch recordings on-demand afterward. You will also ensure that presenters invited to speak by EENC are compensated for their time and expertise, supporting our commitment to equity
Create toolkits, training, and resource collections addressing pressing needs for educators rapidly working to return to in-person programming as well as those who will continue to offer virtual programming
Celebrate the educators in your life this Earth Month by voting for us in this month’s pool. You can be the one to tell our state’s educators “I can help you with that.”00No mods yet.You have not voted yet.Please wait...

April is Earth Month – as well as the starting of spring in many parts of the US. What’s your favorite sign of spring? Whether you’re enjoying early spring flowers, the first tiny leaves, changes in animal activity, or just more hours of sunshine, this season epitomizes growth. Much of that growth is happening underground, in dens, or inside something before we ever get to see those signs. You could say the same thing about EENC right now!
Last month, EENC finalized our outline to best support North Carolina’s community of environmental educators over the next few years. Like many of your organizations, we reevaluate our priorities every few years so that we can maximize our impact and make the best use of our capacity.
Over the next three years, we will focus our efforts on:
- Advocating for the field of environmental education.
- Building partnerships to advance EE efforts in and beyond the classroom.
- Becoming a better, and better-known, resource for professional development, news, and tools to support North Carolina’s diverse audience of environmental educators.
- Building our internal capacity so EENC can continue to grow and serve the needs of our community.
Through all of these focus areas, we are developing specific strategies to weave in justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, a broad definition of what environmental education looks like and who our state’s environmental educators are, and actionable ways to measure our progress.
Will you help us make this possible? Please vote for us this month’s rankings!+10Rating: +1. From 1 mod.You have not voted yet.Please wait...
