Guy Harvey Foundation launches conservation education program for educators  | Boating Industry

The Guy Harvey Foundation (GHF), the non-profit organization that promotes marine conservation, has launched the Guy Harvey Conservation Education Program.

Through this program, educators, and by extension schools and school districts, can participate in regional professional development opportunities dedicated to environmental Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education. Following their training in the program, participants become Guy Harvey Conservation (GHC) Educators who are then empowered with recognition, knowledge and resources they can share with students to foster environmental awareness and contribute to a sustainable future. The program offers grants for field trips and supplies enabling GHC Educators to enhance their teaching and instill conservation values in students.

“We are focused on creating a ripple effect, inspiring GHC Educators to become catalysts for positive environmental change in the minds and actions of their students,” Guy Harvey Foundation CEO Jessica Harvey said. “While this program is currently available throughout Florida, we look forward to expanding not only nationally but internationally as well. Our goal is to educate and enlighten more than 50 million students and more than five million teachers globally with our educational initiatives.”

Open to all elementary, middle and high school educators, the education program training includes all of the materials, classroom supplies and educational content they need to inspire and excite the next generation of stewards of ocean conservation. The initial trainings are strategically offered geographically ensuring inclusivity and flexibility for educators throughout the state so they may register for any conservation professional development opportunity offered regardless of location. This approach enables educators from diverse backgrounds and regions to participate actively, fostering a collaborative environment for environmental education. Educators may also receive Continuing Education Units in accordance with state and district policies.
