Review for GREEN WORKS IN KANSAS CITY, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our Region 7 EPA Urban Waters team has and will continue to collaborate with Green Works in Kansas City because we value their work in engaging urban youth in not only understanding their environment better, but in developing as people and professionals through informal and formal mentoring, and internship placement. The student's eagerness to learn and participate is inspiring, and the liklihood that regardless of the career they choose, they will be good stewards is encouraging. One important aspect of successful collaboration is the degree of organization, preparedness, and commitment on the part of our partners. We can always count on Green Works KC's director, Kate Corwin, to plan well, follow through, and be creative, responsive, and visionary.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & We sponsored a student intern for summer 2010; we taught a hands-on class in urban stream habitat and aquatic life; we taught a class on making straight-to-web videos from "person-on-the-street" interviews about how people feel about their water bodies';.
