Ivy Smith, the ENVS Club President, is passing this along.
Dear Club Contacts and Advisors,
My name is Marisa and I am reaching out to you from Focus the Nation, a national organization committed to youth involvement in America's transition towards a clean energy economy. As you plan events and activities for the upcoming year, I wanted to discuss working with Focus the Nation to host a Clean Energy Forum at your university. The University of Alaska Southeast hosted a successful Focus the Nation event in the past and we would be thrilled to work with you again as we gear up for another round of forums.
Focus the Nation helps student leaders and volunteers build Clean Energy Forums on their college campuses that cross pollinate academic disciplines and engage elected leaders, business leaders, and other leaders from your school’s surrounding community. Clean Energy Forums are set up in a student-led town hall style format, and educate attendees on energy issues in their communities as well as identify roadblocks and solutions to a clean energy economy. In working with us, we will also help you and your teams gain skills that look awesome on resumes. As well, if you qualify for Federal Work Study, some schools will even allow you to receive “work study” pay through us.
We are reaching out to you to find a student organizer to take the lead on hosting a Focus the Nation Clean Energy Forum. I would be happy to speak to you further about the FTN Clean Energy Forums and how your university can be involved as you plan for the upcoming school year. I can be reached at 503-564-4985 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to speak with you soon.
