Teresa Butel, College and Career Coordinator
Goal-oriented. Genuine. Goofy.
As the College and Career Coordinator, Teresa provides experiential job training, connects youth to new professional networks, and mentors students interested in finding sustainable opportunities in Natural Resources, Environmental Sciences, and related fields. She has previous experience with a rich network of Twin Cities nonprofits that work to promote greater access for youth to outdoor careers and college resources with Wilderness Inquiry, the U.S. Forest Service, and College Possible. She also has worked for Conservation Corps in several capacities, as a Summer Youth Corps (SYC) crew leader in 2014 and 2015, a SYC assistant director in 2017, and an Administrative Associate in 2018. Her favorite thing about working with the Corps is supporting the confidence and comradery that crew members develop while working outdoors. Outside of work, Teresa bike commutes across the cities in search of free community art projects, donuts, and social justice events.
