With the future of our waterways at stake, what would happen if each and every young person living within our watershed learned how to protect their local creeks, lakes, and rivers?

The goal of Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s Water Warriors is to inspire and empower student river advocates and help them find their own personal connection to the great outdoors, including the Chattahoochee River.

Water Warriors on Campus are dedicated high school and college students who want to gain experience standing up for our water’s future and inspire changes to protect it. CRK is currently accepting applications for the next class of this impactful program, which will begin working in fall of 2022.

These student-led groups will need to have a strong passion for our environment, be willing to think creatively about volunteer opportunities, outreach, and more, and believe in CRK’s mission to protect and preserve the Chattahoochee River and its waterways for all who depend on them.

We ask that applicants be willing to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours toward volunteering during the program period (starting in October and lasting until the end of March). There is no cost to participate, and each student will receive a Water Warrior kit filled with outreach supplies and informational material, in addition to a t-shirt and ongoing training and support from CRK staff.
