Secondary School Program

Although the Secondary School Program follows a similar outline as our Primary School Program, Secondary Ambassadors are awarded greater freedom to identify environmental issues important to their local community. Ambassadors are encouraged to use critical thinking skills to problem solve, along with connections to local industry experts to help tackle these issues.
