A long-time leader of the Green Schools movement, we believe it is critical that students learn not just about the theory of sustainability but also how to take real action in their own lives and communities.

Equity, Justice, and Belonging (EJB)

Do you believe that creating an equitable community rooted in social justice where people can feel they authentically belong is a shared responsibility? Do you want to be part of it? So do we. Here we build in time and create spaces for students to discuss, learn, and reflect on the importance of EJB work in our community.
