AmeriCorps The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (CZBG) and AmeriCorps have partnered together with two goals in mind! We are bringing fun, science- based educational opportunities to students in Cincinnati who need it the most. Together, CZBG and AmeriCorps provides quality STEM education to economically disadvantaged Prek-12 students. AmeriCorps Members work directly with teachers and students to improve science literacy and academic engagement in science process. We are also challenging our community to step up and do more to conserve resources and wildlife! AmeriCorps Members engage community members by sharing sustainable habits, encourage behavior change, and provide hands-on learning opportunities. Our goal is to lead by example and spark environmentally conscious practices in our community.
