BCK Programs, LLC
Since 2013, Bill Dean, Kathy Hacker and Camille Sowinski have been engaging student interns with SWPPP Internship™ Program. Together in 2016 they formed BCK Programs, LLC and hired a team of educators, scientists, and environmental leaders to help build the next generation of knowledgeable and empowered environmental advocates in the areas of water quality and conservation, waste diversion, energy and school gardens.
"Each of the ten presentations provided clear examples of deep understanding of the issues by students, visuals of how they solved problems, samples of their actions taken to educate others and thoughtful demonstrations of their creativity! It was quality problem-based, design-thinking, real world learning at its very best!"
- Andrée Grey, Assistant Superintendent Educational Services, Encinitas Union School District
"The SWPPP Interns are busy tackling maintenance activities, like inspecting drains, and removing debris from inlets, but they are going beyond that by testing runoff samples and designing Best Management Practices. The SWPPP Internship Program extends our reach.”
- Dan Love, Director of Maintenance, Operations and Transportation, San Dieguito Union High School District
