CHANGE THE WORLD FOR GOOD
Through experiential education, we take urgent issues and make them relevant to young people, shedding light on the power we all have to change to the world for good. This approach prepares the next generation of inspired environmental problem solvers to work together to make an exponential impact on the planet-now and in the future.
Our school programs reach more than 12,000 students every year at our 250-acre campus on Bainbridge Island, in Seattle neighborhoods, and at the King County Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Plant in Woodinville. In addition, we partner with teachers and schools across our region to provide curriculum, teacher professional development and support, and advocacy that helps connect classroom learning to real environmental issues in students' communities. Through our graduate program we are also preparing future educators ready to ignite change in our schools, communities, and planet.
