Schools and Universities

We regularly work with students and professors from surrounding universities to coordinate internships, capstone projects and service-learning opportunities. In the past, we have had students do projects with the business coalition, community energy audits, advocacy for sustainable transportation, etc. contact us about setting up an internship or capstone project.

Renew Rocktown has also worked with Safe Routes to School to improve safety conditions along designated school bike paths. For example, we constructed a 300-foot extension of the Thomas Harrison Middle School bike path so that students had an easier and safer commute to school. This effort involved volunteers from Renew Rocktown, as well as students from surrounding middle schools to build the path.
