Giving youth the tools to tackle real-world challenges in their schools and communities.

Through our curriculum and programs, students cultivate environmental literacy and 21st-century skills, adopt sustainable living practices, and act as leaders and creative changemakers in their communities. EcoRise introduces students to the three pillars of sustainability: people, planet, and prosperity, and students demonstrate the social, economic, and environmental impacts of their sustainability projects.
