Career pathways

We're proud to support the next generation of environmental leaders. 

Collaborative Pathways

FMR co-leads Collaborative Pathways, a consortium of environmental groups seeking to increase racial and cultural diversity within our organizations and our sector in Minnesota.

Environmental Stewardship Institute

While many high schools offer green teams or eco clubs, young people rarely have the opportunity to explore their career options in the environmental field. FMR created the Environmental Stewardship Institute (ESI) in 2019 to address this gap between environmental education and environmental career pathways.


It can be tough to break into this highly competitive and sometimes exclusive field. FMR offers internships to help young people get their foot in the door.
