Prior to joining GSE, Julia was Sustainability Program Coordinator at California State University Channel Islands and an Environmental Youth Mentor/Educator with NOAA. As a youth mentor, she provided students from a local middle school with an opportunity to explore and research their local intertidal zones. After graduating she interned with the Presidio National Park as an Environmental Education intern, and strengthened her passion for EE. There she was moved by the understanding that in heavily urbanized areas young people need a bit of a push to take a walk on the wild side and aims to provide the foundation to foster that passion in youth. She wants to pursue further her education and receive a Master’s Degree in EE.
Contra Costa County Program Coordinator
Global Student Embassy at Campolindo
Campo is the pilot program in Contra Costa County with a biointensive school mini farm. The environmental science class meets weekly in the garden as well as the GSE club to help produce thousands of pounds of vegetables that are donated to White Pony Express. The garden at Campo has become an outdoor classroom for biology, art, photo, film, and APES. This year the Fab Five Rotary Clubs and Campolindo donated enough money to build a greenhouse, which will be placed outside of the science classrooms. This will become an additional outdoor classroom and will grow seedlings for the entire district.
The community is a place of the highest importance. I have learned to be more honest and helpful within a group; providing constructive criticism and doing my share. Knowing how to work together is what makes a community.Jamison Burks
