The Anthropology Advisory Committee (AAC) is a team of independent volunteers who serve as peer review support and guidance for our Program Development Team. Their primary role is to read, review, and provide expert topical feedback on resources and activities in development for core educational programming at Prime Earth.

By constructively sharing their opinions, perspectives, and recommendations, the AAC is a vital component of our organization, helping to ensure Prime Earth continues to provide high quality, high value content  as we educate, empower, and engage people to become compassionate global citizens who live in harmony with nature and each other.


If you're looking to harness your anthropological expertise and put your knowledge to work to make our world more inclusive, accepting, and understanding, volunteering for the AAC just might be the place for you!
