is also being developed.
Green jobs represent one of
the fastest growing and changing
segments of the global economy.
At the same time, today's youth are
seeking rewarding careers that help
us move toward more sustainable
lifestyles and greener economies.
Green Jobs: Exploring Forest
Careers inspires youth to become
lifelong forest supporters and
conservation leaders and gets youth
excited about green careers as they
explore forest-related jobs.
Employers are looking for
workers who can communicate and
collaborate, and who are creative
leaders. Green Jobs: Exploring
Forest Careers includes a selfassessment for youth to analyze
their leadership and people-oriented
skills, as well as their technical skills
in science, technology, engineering,
and math (STEM), along with career
connections that can help any
worker in today's job market.
"Some of the most exciting and
greenest jobs involve forests. These
jobs benefit forests and ensure that
the forest products we depend
on are sustainably sourced," said
Kathy Abusow, President and CEO
of SFI Inc. "At SFI, we advance
sustainability through forest-focused
collaborations and we are thrilled
to engage our accredited partners
and diverse professional networks in
growing pathways to green careers
with this latest resource from Project
Learning Tree."
Support for the Green Jobs:
Exploring Forest Careers unit and
accompanying online resources
was provided by the USDA Forest
Service and the Society of American
Foresters (SAF).
"SAF is proud to support this
exciting, new resource from our
partners at Project Learning Tree and
the Sustainable Forestry Initiative,"
said Terry Baker, CEO at the Society
of American Foresters. "Forests
and trees are poised to be a major

"FORESTS AND TREES ARE POISED TO BE A
MAJOR PART OF THE SOLUTION TO MANY OF OUR
WORLD'S MOST PRESSING ISSUES, WHICH IS WHY
INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF FORESTRY
PROFESSIONALS AND CONSERVATION LEADERS IS
FUNDAMENTAL TO OUR FUTURE."
part of the solution to many of our
world's most pressing issues, which
is why inspiring the next generation
of forestry professionals and
conservation leaders is fundamental
to our future."
"Exploring "green jobs" is a timely
topic," says Tinelle Bustam, Director
(acting), Conservation Education,
USDA Forest Service, State and
Private Forestry. "All too often I am
asked, "So, how does a person get
into your position?" This training
curriculum provides the answer to
that question as well as a deeper look

into the role of a land manager as
decision maker and change agent."
Educators, career and guidance
counselors, Scouts, 4-H, and FFA
leaders, foresters, and job training
advisors in particular can use this
resource to help youth envision
forestry career opportunities and
point out pathways to green careers.
