Dear friends in Earth Care,
Are you, or do you know a young adult (20-30), who wants to grow in their faith, has a passion for earth care, and could benefit from a wonderful weeklong event focused on these two passions? Are you (or they) interested in a paid summer internship? Please consider participating in the Eco-Stewards Program. Read more about this PEC co-sponsored program below.

ECO-STEWARDS PROGRAM - Apply by March 1.
Applications are now available for the June 2-9, 2012 Eco-Stewards Program in Vermont and Boston. Spread the word!
This program for young adults (age 20-30) will focus on Climate Change & Christian Activism in light of the recent surge in protest movements from Occupy Wall Street to Tar Sands Action to 350.org.
Join the Eco-Stewards as they meet with Occupy Boston’s spiritual leaders, visit Walden Pond to discuss Henry David Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience, help with Hurricane Irene relief projects in Vermont, talk with 350.org’s grassroots organizers and discuss our individual eco-faith journeys while hiking in the Green Mountains or paddling the Connecticut River. Among others, the program’s leadership will include: Rev. Rob Mark of Harvard University’s Memorial Church and First Presbyterian Church of Waltham, Massachusetts and Becky W. Evans, a freelance environmental journalist and communication professor at Boston University and Lasell College.
In addition to this weeklong event, paid and unpaid summer-long internships are also available.
