Based in Buffalo, New York, Tyler Amy serves as Renewal’s Coordinator. His roots run deep in the Great Lakes region, where he has enjoyed picturesque autumns and long winters since his childhood in northwestern Pennsylvania. His interest in sustainability issues grew while an undergrad at Waynesburg University and while serving with Renewal’s Student Leadership Team.
During his undergrad studies, Tyler was graciously given the opportunity to study in New Zealand with the Creation Care Study Program. It wasn’t long after his initial trip to New Zealand, Tyler made his way back, this time working with passionate and creative students, in a Student Life Coordinator role for CCSP.
What excites him most about Renewal is coming alongside students, learning from them and offering his insight.
Tyler’s responsibilities include making campus visits, providing direction and feedback for the Student Leadership Team, plan events such as the Renewal Summit and oversee all Renewal publications including the Green Awakenings Reports and the Campus Garden Toolkit.
Some of Tyler’s additional interests include birding, playing lawn games, sketching and bike riding with his wife, Mary Beth.
