Remember those special college professors whose lectures kept you wide awake and wanting to hear more? The ones you wished could be cloned? Steven Schragis, a Tufts University graduate, came up with a solution almost as good. He founded One Day University for adults in 2006. By canvassing campuses and talking to students, he finds the most popular educators and then works closely with them to develop engaging talks that inform and inspire their adult students-for-a-day.

Seaside Sustainability Internships

Seaside Sustainability Intern Molly and Francie Caudill of Manchester Coastal Stream Team collect data for Salem Sound Coastwatch

Seaside Sustainability is looking for part-time interns in high school and college to work on a diverse and challenging array of projects and initiatives. Our interns engage in focused learning experiences where they receive guidance and resources to apply newfound knowledge and skills to their emerging professional lives.  Seaside Sustainability programs and initiatives encourage members of the community young and old to build and nurture a relationship with local land and seascapes. We believe that environmental challenges are rooted in a societal neglect to instill ethical and social responsibility into our existence. We address these issues by illuminating the heavy costs of environmental degradation, and providing resources to develop skills, solutions, and community involvement to counterbalance that impact.
