My name is Anthony Belavitch and I am a Conservation Coach for Walnut Creek Saves. This job is great because I get good experience talking to people and explaining what we do and how we can help them save water and energy, all while saving money on their bills. This work experience helps a lot and I get to do it alongside other high school students. From this job I have learned a lot about water, energy, and the world.
A recent event I attended was the First Wednesday downtown Walnut Creek event. This event was fun because there was music and a lot of interesting booths there. I was able to speak to a lot of people and struck up some entertaining conversations. It has been awesome working with other Conservation Coaches during outreach events because I can learn interesting things about everybody and they also help you along with the job if you slip up. It is kind of like a family where everybody gets to know each other and we all have each other’s back.
I learn a lot every day with this job and with the information I learn I can apply it to situations in life. The experience will help me succeed at other jobs as I continue to learn and grow. This is why the Walnut Creek Saves team is so great!
