Victor Medina, Youth Programs Manager
Victor joins us from Lowell National Historic Park in Massachusetts, where he has worked for over five years as a National Park Ranger. He led both interpretation programs for visitors and youth engagement programs for youth, which created lasting connections between the park’s resources and the community it serves. Victor developed an early passion for conservation as a student at the High School for Environmental Studies in New York City. He participated in a wide range of activities including the Recycling Club, family beach cleanups, and internships at the New York League of Conservation Voters and the Nature Conservancy’s Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future (LEAF) program. Victor is a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Youth Opportunities Program and serves on the Board of the Friends of the High School for Environmental Studies. As our Youth Programs Manager, Victor continues to inspire youth to take on the conservation challenges in their communities and prepare them to cultivate a more sustainable world for future generations.
Victor holds a B.A in Geography, Globalization, and Urban Studies and Planning as well as a certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from the University of Albany. In addition, Victor holds a certificate in Community Leadership and Social Change from Tisch College at Tufts University.
