Target demographics: K-12 youth, educators

Direct beneficiaries per year: 23,000

Geographic areas served: United States

Programs: We bring together partners to transform how communities educate and engage young people around environment issues. Together, Earth Force and our partners stimulate opportunities for young people living in low-income communities to engage in real problem solving around environmental issues in their communities.

Our approach combines the best of community development with youth civic engagement, service learning and environmental education. The result is national and local networks of organizations that successfully engage youth in civic life. There are three essential elements to our work:

1. Build support and consensus within communities, national organizations and among local leaders

2. Increase the capacity of schools and community-based organizations to effectively engage youth

3. Expand the impact of local programs by coordinating the work of like-minded organizations

Mission:
Earth Force engages young people as active citizens who improve the environment and their communities now and in the future.
Results:
Through an innovative partnership with the Center for Youth and Communities at Brandeis University, Earth Force has conducted program evaluations for over 13 years. This quantitative analysis of our effectiveness has helped us refine our program to the point where the 2011 evaluation results represent the seventh straight year of positive, statistically significant outcomes for our participants.
