Regeneration Corps

Regeneration Corps is a learning movement supporting youth in gaining the hands-on skills necessary to transition from an extractive culture to one that is regenerative. The content of this collaboration supports student involvement and ongoing community connections in the following areas: 

  • Just Transition 

  • Regenerative Agriculture

  • Racial Justice

  • Climate Mitigation & Adaptation

  • Community Organizing & Service-based Projects 

  • Youth Engagement & Leadership

  • Food & Land Sovereignty

This collaboration presents regenerative food systems as a key element of addressing climate change and socio-economic resilience. Our scholastic and organizational partners train participants in agricultural literacy, community organizing, social justice, and a broad spectrum of hands-on and place-based content. This is an opportunity for youth to earn credit and/or satisfy proficiency based learning requirements and further academic studies while building life skills and a regenerative future across the region. We are dedicated to working with schools and students to make sure that this program is accessible to all by helping to overcome obstacles to participation on a case-by-case basis.

 

Students can receive academic credit or meet proficiency based learning requirements through Flexible Pathways or personalized learning programs.  The potential for each student to receive academic credit for their involvement will depend on their respective schools’ available staff support, Flexible Pathways/independent study offerings, and the capacity of those programs to support their work with partner organizations.  There are also opportunities for teachers to incorporate Regeneration Corps programming into their curriculum and for students to participate in community service events as an introduction to Regenation Corps.
