Rockland P.L.U.S. (Planning Land Use with Students) is a program for high school students to make connections to real-world planning issues and decisions, share their ideas and vision with their peers and mentors, and learn more about careers and their own leadership potential and strengths. This is a collaborative partnership of Columbia University Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Keep Rockland Beautiful, Rockland Conservation & Service Corps, St. Thomas Aquinas College, & Rockland Economic Development Corporation.
“REDC is proud to have collaborated with its non-profit partners by helping to select ‘real-life’ case studies, serving as project mentors and facilitating a multi-dimensional student experience. By cultivating critical links between education and business—our ‘Eds and Meds’—we are increasing economic development awareness among the leaders of tomorrow and investing in a sustainable future.”
Jeremy L. Schulman, REDC President and CEO
