Detailed Information:
The Stanford Youth Environmental Science Program (SYESP) is a five-year long educational/ leadership program for exceptionally gifted low-income, at-risk, predominantly minority, high school juniors and seniors who are concerned with the environment. Students from such communities traditionally have not pursued environmental careers, though their neighborhoods are often hardest hit by environmental problems. The participants' involvement with SYESP begins with a six-week summer program. By exposing these students to national experts on the environment and assisting them into and through college to top graduate and professional schools, SYESP fosters future environmental leaders who could impact their neighborhoods and other disenfranchised communities on local and global levels.
