Student Engagement


Are you a current student interested in environmental and sustainability careers? Or a professional or advocate working in those fields who wants to help mentor the next generation? If so, get involved in BlackOak’s student engagement program. Our program empowers Black subject matter experts to connect with students and increases student awareness of careers in sustainability.

Through our program, students can:

1) Network with Black professionals and advocates who share career interests

2) Learn from presentations on environmental careers given by our members at students’ secondary education institutions

3) Consult with other members for subject matter expertise on academic projects

To learn more and participate in the program, contact Miles Braxton. Miles leads the student and community engagement program for BlackOak, having been nationally awarded for his speaking series on Navigating a Clean Energy Career for Young Professionals of Color.
