From the (e)Mailbox: 15 years of EE support

USEE, as well as many state organizations throughout North America, have benefited from the work of The Environmental Education and Training Partnership. Check out the stats below and then read more about USEE's involvement in the formal article here.

The Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP) achieved impressive numbers: between 1995 and 2011, EETAP programs reached 2.5 million education professionals and over 31 million individuals across the country. By any measure, it’s an enormous accomplishment, and there’s no question that EETAP’s influence on the EE profession has been felt far and wide.

Within those numbers—beyond the outcomes and outputs listed on the logic models —are many incredible stories of change and growth. These stories reflect EETAP’s success in cultivating leadership, reaching new people, providing training and resources, and literally changing lives.

Look back at EETAP’s tenure through the lens of individuals and organizations that benefited from EETAP-sponsored programs. Some took unexpected journeys, dramatically changing the way they teach or stepping into new leadership roles. Others found resources to support their movement along a planned path, perhaps to diversifying their audiences or increasing their capacity to serve their memberships. All were part of a carefully conceived strategy that has changed the field of environmental education in profound and exciting ways.
