For more than 25 years, the National Wildlife Federation has been working with students on projects that create greener, wildlife-friendly campuses and communities.

The National Wildlife Federation EcoLeaders Initiative provides hands-on project experience that enable students in high school and higher education to make a meaningful impact on today's biggest environmental challenges, while also helping them practice and build leadership skills that set them apart from their peers.
