At the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, we work closely with nonprofit organizations across the state. Several of these organizations have expressed an interest in engaging undergraduate students to help cultivate interest in community involvement and work towards integrative solutions for modern day obstacles to a greener future. While students have classes that introduce them to possible future employment opportunities, NGOs (non-governmental organizations) often take a backseat in these discussions. As a result, some students don't know where to start when it comes to establishing a trajectory towards a career that aligns with their values. To this end, we are planning an EcoFair on September 13, 2023 from 4 to 8PM on the lawn in front of the Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences Building on Cook Campus and inviting non-profit organizations to table at the event in hopes of introducing students to opportunities of which they might otherwise be unaware.
