Join a USEE Action Team!

USEE is activating Action Teams to provide assistance and support for the planning and development of major events, including our Spring Breakfast, Awards and Annual Conference. Action Teams are time-bound, goal-oriented and don't require a monthly meeting. Joining an Action Team is a great way to support USEE's mission, connect with environmental education enthusiasts, and build skills like event planning and outreach.

 

All environmental educators and USEE supporters are welcomed to be part of an Action Team. No one will be turned away from participating due to race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, age, national origin, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation, language, and/or heritage.
