Teen Environmental Education Mentorship (TEEM) is a volunteer environmental education internship and leadership program for San Francisco and Marin high school students. Through TEEM, participants discover their inner strength as leaders, their ability to positively influence others, and the importance of diversity, community, and hands-on learning. TEEM interns gain firsthand knowledge about the field of environmental education through field trips, one-on-one mentorships with our professional educators, and by leading interactive activities with our elementary school participants.
