Environmentor is a science research mentorship for high school students over the spring & summer months to conduct authentic environmental research on Jamaica Bay and the Rockaway shoreline.
The 2021 Cycle for Environmental is full. Students looking for our other summer programs, should look into applying for the Summer Shore Corps Program, accepting applications in the spring.
RISE provides paid internships to a select group of high school students in the spring and summer to conduct authentic research under the mentorship of scientists from local universities and research institutions on projects focused on the Rockaway shoreline.
Any student in 9th-11th grade, who lives or attends school in, or around, Rockaway, NY, is eligible to apply to the Environmentor Program. (Priority is given to sophomores and juniors).
Spring 2021: January 11th - June 4th, 2021
Summer 2021: July 6th to August 14th, 2021.
