Tecumseh Land Trust
Conservation Education Intern
As the world faces climate change and very serious threats to water and food security, our local land trust needs your help to plan for the future and recruit the support we need to make this community resilient and green! From backyard habitat (Communities & Wildlife: Year in Review • The National Wildlife Federation Blog (nwf.org), to developing local farm and food systems (Facebook) to major land access policy change (Land to Black Farmers) , we can make a difference for earth and its residents every day of the year. We need your research and communication skills to tell the story!
There are many stories to tell, and our Miller fellows are often our best story tellers. More than ever, as we face the challenges of COVID to body and soil, we need to celebrate the wonders of nature here in southwest Ohio and the joy it brings through quiet enjoyment (Study: Birds Are Linked to Happiness Levels – EcoWatch), learning about nature (Sugar Shack Returns), changes in food and farming (Tecumseh Land Trust) art, photos (Facebook), poetry, history and more.
Through co-ops and part-time jobs, our Miller Fellows make connections that can be life changing as well as world changing.
Get in touch and let’s talk more about the possibilities at Tecumseh Land Trust – email@example.com.
Student Miller Fellowships are paid positions with local nonprofit organizations that are awarded grants to employ Miller Fellows.
Student Miller Fellows will need to attend the first available Nonprofit Leadership Institute (NLI) at some point during their employment with the nonprofit. The NLI provides information on philanthropy and of nonprofits, and provides grounding and framework for learning from their experiences as a Miller Fellow. Students learn how nonprofits operate, how successful nonprofits function, and the important role students play in the community, representing their schools and the YSCF. They meet nonprofit leaders in the community and gain experience through hands-on work sessions.
Miller Fellowships are offered to the following individuals:
- A full-time, degree-seeking student in good standing at a Greene County college or university with a preference towards an Antioch College student
- A high school student who is a resident of Yellow Springs/Miami Township or an attendee at Yellow Springs High School; high school Miller Fellows must be 16 years old or older.
- A resident of Yellow Springs/Miami Township under the age of 25 in a gap year before or during college or home for a vacation period
- Students must have completed the YSCF’s Nonprofit Leadership Institute (NLI) or apply and complete the next available NLI during their employment.
- The identified Miller Fellow can be a current employee of the nonprofit if they meet the requirements above.
