Inaugural Water 101 Academy— Spring 2019

Valley Water launched a brand new Water 101 Academy ambassador program this February for members of the community in the Santa Clara County who want to gain an understanding of local water issues and learn about current or future water projects going on in their local communities.

The objective of this pilot program is to educate, inspire, engage, and empower a diverse group of community members to be water champions on issues related to safe, clean water and promote environmental stewardship within their own respective neighborhoods and local communities.

The inaugural pilot program is now underway. Valley Water received nearly 90 applications this past winter, and 21 community ambassadors were selected throughout the county to participate in the first spring 2019 cohort. Those interested in future academies, please check back during the fall for next year’s application period, or email us at [email protected] to be added to the notification list.
