It starts with puppet theatre presentations that have engaged over 50,000 elementary students, continues through age appropriate experiential learning for middle school students that reached 1237 students in its inaugural year of 2017-2018 and ends up with the successful launch of professional and post-graduate careers in the environmental sector for youth ages 15-30. Under Shannon’s leadership, Clean Foundation’s educational programming in Nova Scotia has been unified into a cohesive program that engages youth from Primary school all the way through to University, including placing over 180 students into environmental internships over the last two years. “Teaching the teacher”, she’s shared the program with over 170 colleagues from across Canada.
