Helen Russell; Inspiring Youth Through Experiential Learning

This week Kip walks with Helen Russell in the woods of Hale Reservation.  Helen reflects on her experience working at Hale as a young adult and how it inspired a life-long love of the outdoors and learning through doing.  Kip and Helen discuss how this experience informs her current role as Executive Director of Apprentice Learning where she serves more than 200 8th graders by providing them with hands-on work experiences.  Kip and Helen also share some engaging conversation around scarcity, fear, and making decisions in the face of adversity.  The ease and flow of the conversation mirrored the  natural beauty all around them.  Helen Russell is Founder and Executive Director of Apprentice Learning which connects middle schools students with real-world job opportunities.  To learn more about Apprentice Learning and how you may be able to help, please visit their website: https://apprenticelearning.org/
