Youth Opportunities

This is the youth opportunities column!  Parents, please do consider highlighting the following opportunities to your children!

Editorial Club:

Who: 7th to 10th grade (but open to others who may be interested as well)

When: Starts June 18 with 5 weekly sessions

Sign up form: https://forms.gle/EqJoudBKhmzXjf3p8

Parents, do consider asking your child if they are interested in participating in the Editorial Club!  This summer group, run by the high school students of the Metrowest branch of the Alliance of Youth Leaders in the United States (AYLUS), was created to promote critical thinking and strong writing skills. 

Through 5 sessions, each an hour in length, the club will discuss and analyze op-ed articles on a variety of topics (history, science, literature, etc.).  For the younger students, working on developing these analysis skills is one of the best ways to begin preparing for their SATs and ACTs, and they are also useful for many humanities and science-based careers! Supplementary webinars focusing on specific themes may also be offered.

It starts on June 18th, and you can sign your child up by filling out the form linked above. Please email aylusmetrowest@gmail.com with any questions.

Onora’s Social Impact Entrepreneur Fellowship

Who: High school students

When: June 21 – August 1

To register: Send a brief email to team@onoraglobal.com with:

  • Your school
  • State
  • Why you’re interested in the Fellowship

The Fellowship brings together bright minds from around the country to help mobilize climate action around the world. They meet weekly over the course of one month, and students will learn about, brainstorm, and test ways to help people take climate action and systematically influence a better future in the process. More than ten trees will be planted for each fellowship student for helping make the world a better place!

Upon completing the Fellowship, students are invited to join Onora’s growing Student Advisory Committee. Here, you’ll get to continue weighing in on the future of Onora and how they advance their mission of making climate conscious education and planet healing action easily accessible to everyone.
