Thank you to Sustainable Travel International for providing this wonderful testimonial for EcoApprentice and Portland State University.
“On behalf of Sustainable Travel International, I applaud the hard work of the Portland State University students who worked with Byron Williams at Grand Cru Wine Tours. Their dedication made the STEP Certification a reality for his organization. To be sure, certification is not to be taken lightly and EcoApprentice students made the process an overwhelming success.
As an advocate of experiential education, I am excited to learn that the students had such a positive experience and one that will help shape their professional careers. The very foundation of well-rounded education is to learn and experience outside of the classroom walls. The students now have a practical skill set that they can incorporate throughout their careers. And it doesn’t stop there – Grand Cru Wine Tours is also a beneficiary. The Sustainability Policy and Training Manual created by the EcoApprentice students is a wonderful example of how the STEP Standard of Best Practice can be incorporated into almost all aspects of business operations and how to fully utilize the STEP-Sustainability Management Framework for positive results well into the future.
We were very pleased with the work of the students, the commitment of Byron and his organization, and the professional follow-through for all those involved. We look forward to continuing our relationship with EcoApprentice and working to Leave the World a Better Place®.”
