Since 2016, the Greenway Trust has partnered with King County Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) to hire a cohort of high school interns each summer to learn about local environmental issues, solutions, and careers. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering an online program. The Clean Water Ambassadors Program is a four-week, virtual program that is open to all high school-aged teens in the King County region.
WHAT: Online program for high school-aged youth to learn how to help protect clean water in our region.
