2021-22 Schedule


Winter/Spring 2021

Application due 6 weeks before workshop...

As a CTP participant, you will be paired up with a teammate. Most teams will consist of one teen and one adult. The goal is for each team to participate in a two-day workshop and then carry out a local environmental action together. We will take into account the following to help determine teams: (1) where you live and which workshop you can attend, (2) your interests and (3) your time availability. To help us match participants and apply to the CTP program, please submit the online application 6 weeks before the workshop date you'd like to attend.

Application deadline for each workshop:

  • Session 1: Application Due May 31
  • Session 2: Application Due June 21


Early Summer 2021

Program forms due 4 weeks before the workshop...

You will need to submit the program enrollment forms 4 weeks before the workshop date to confirm your participation. Once enrolled and assigned a teammate, it is very important that you commit to participating in the program because another participant will be dependent on your participation.

Enrollment deadline for each workshop:

  • Session 1: Enrollment Deadline June 14
  • Session 2: Enrollment Deadline July 5


Summer 2021

Participate in the two-day workshop...

  • Session 1: July 8 & 9 (Thursday & Friday)
  • Session 2: July 31 & August 1 (Saturday & Sunday)

Summer 2021 up to February 2022

Carry out a community environmental action after the workshop...

As a team, you will apply new knowledge and tools to address a local conservation issue of your choice. The specific project topic, duration and intensity will be tailored to your interests, circumstances and time availability.

March 2022

Showcase your project at a state-wide event...

You will have the opportunity to share your accomplishments in the form of a poster, StoryMap or video at a fun, causal event - either the Connecticut Land Conservation Conference or the Connecticut Conference on Natural Resources.
