As an EarthTeam intern we get to learn about how litter, especially marine debris, affects our Earth. We also get to educate our peers and teachers by spreading our knowledge. EarthTeam allows us to develop our leadership, communication, teamwork, and creativity skills through our projects. These projects include tabling to raise awareness to fellow students at Richmond high, cleanups at school and local shorelines to improve our environment state, and an outdoor classroom to educate those around us. Some things we are excited for are our Saturday outings in which we will learn and experience new things. We are also looking forward to our camping trip where we can engage not only with our environment but also with other earth team interns from other school to learn form each other and share earth team experiences.
