Youth Education Committee
The Youth Education Committee has three main goals, we:
1. Promote education and stewardship of one of our most precious resource, Water, to our most precious resource, our Children.
2. Attracting the younger generation to a rewarding career in the water environment industry.
3. Encourage professional and public participation in outreach and educational opportunities through support, guidance, training and resource materials.
Committee members develop educational materials; organize, promote and run educational events; and build relationships between the water quality industry and our New England communities. See how many children we’ve reached >>
