Education and Outreach

We train current and future generations of leaders to create a world where people, animals, and the planet can thrive.

We provide public resources and education, training, and mentorship programs for students and professionals who work in medicine, public health, law, and other fields.

Through our programs, we train our partners to tackle big problems, including climate change, communicable and non-communicable diseases, violence, and other threats to people, animals, and the planet.

We build bridges across sectors and partner with organizations worldwide.

Professional Education and Outreach

Education and Training

We offer free education, training, and mentorship, including through a partnership with Project ECHO, to give our partners the knowledge and skills they need to introduce community and public health interventions that are just, equitable, and recognize the closely connected rights, health, and wellbeing of people, animals, and the planet.

Internships and Externships

We offer internships and externships to college students, graduate students, and post-graduates.

“Throughout my legal education, I have sought opportunities to immerse myself in interdisciplinary, movement-oriented work. When I became aware of an opportunity to work with Phoenix Zones Initiative, it quickly became apparent that the organization embodies a holistic and interdisciplinary strategy; one which I felt inspired by and drawn towards….I deeply appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with thoughtful and motivated people. I also really appreciated getting to immerse myself in interdisciplinary research and literature; I learned so much over the course of my internship.”
—Eric Sugarman, Law Student Graduate, Lewis & Clark School of Law
