Stewards VISTA: Conservation Legacy - SIP
The Stewards Individual Placement Program (SIPP) places individual placements across the nation in projects that build capacity, improve access to natural resources, develop and support innovative solutions, develop opportunities for service and economic development, and empower leaders. Housed in Beckley, West Virginia, Stewards Program aims to strengthen local impact and create a culture of stewardship by focusing on targeted audiences and concentrating our efforts in serving underrepresented populations in our home community. By working alongside fellow community leaders, supporting local organizations, and targeting underserved populations, our goal is to encourage community improvements at the local level, generating skilled, educated, and active future civic leaders.
