Challenge

Provide programming for youth in schools around the country to raise awareness about potentially toxic exposures found in their everyday products that may be linked to cancer, asthma, reproductive harm, and other health risks. Through peer based learning activities and advocacy training, empower new youth leaders to advocate for safer chemical policy, and lead their schools and communities toward a greener future.

Solution

Mentor teens to create actions and activities that inspire their peers to change habits toward protecting the environment and personal health; including school presentations, outreach events, investigative case studies, and greener alternatives lists

Long-Term Impact

We reach more than 30,000 youth annually. We inspire them to become scientists, activist, educators, mentors, leaders, environmental stewards,and innovators by providing the tools, resources, and support they need to be change makers.
