Project Overview
Exploring Nonprofit Conservation Career Pathways has an impact on college and career readiness as it connects real-world skills and knowledge from a nationally recognized park with students in small-town America. CCLC students will discover the myriad of career pathways available at the Wildlife Safari Park and learn the operations of a nonprofit organization. In addition, students will learn hands-on job skills associated with wildlife careers, while gaining a deep understanding of the leadership structure and a variety of business practices. The mission and core strategies, as well as the fundamentals of operating a conservation park, are emphasized.
