There are 3,500 Eco-Schools in the United States. In 2013 these schools lowered their utility bills by $60 million, developed and/or nurtured many hundreds of schoolyard habitats, planted trees, recycled hundreds of tons of waste, passed tons of unused food to food banks and more.
Importantly, 1.8 million participating students became more environmentally aware and a majority of them were able to develop environmental knowledge and skills that will help them be more effective as people, leaders and resource conservationists in their adult lives.
You will have the opportunity to work with your local school to decide how often you will volunteer and in what capacity. Our goal is to make it as easy and flexible as possible for GM Eco-Green Mentors and schools to collaborate.
Here are a few examples of how GM Eco-Green Mentors can get involved:
