Speakers Bureau is an educational program that focuses on providing environmental lectures to schools and businesses in Los Angeles County. We offer 5 different lecture topics, which we modify to fit any age group, from Pre-K to adults. We aim to reach as many students and community members as we can, as education and awareness are our strongest tools in helping our environment get the help it needs.

This FREE training is a great opportunity for anyone interested in gaining experience in environmental education, science, policy, community outreach, and public speaking. Responsibilities after completing Speakers Bureau training include preparing for your chosen talk the day of, making sure to arrive on time to the destination (not necessary if it is a virtual presentation), and coordinating with the client for any last-minute changes.

All sessions are mandatory to complete the Speakers Bureau training. Trainees are expected to attend all 4 training sessions to become full-fledged members of the Speakers Bureau team. Please let Kayleigh Wade (kwade@healthebay.org) know if you are experiencing time constraints.

Protect what you love. Join Heal the Bay Speakers Bureau!
