Green Schools Program

The Next Generation Green Schools Program exists to foster environmental education, youth leadership development, and green behaviors and operations in our schools. We work with students, teachers and administrators at elementary, middle and high schools to tailor a comprehensive program that supports current school priorities and engages students to create a sustainable future.
