Earthwatch Teen Expeditions


Earthwatch recruits high school volunteers to assist scientists on field research and conservation expeditions in the US and around the world. The organization sponsors scholars in every field of study, from archaeology to marine biology and zoology. Projects include whale and dolphin surveys, archaeological excavations, rain forest mapping, animal behavior research and climate change studies, among others. Participants need not possess any special skills, as training is provided. Teen teams include additional organized group activities, as well as presentations on research and career development.
