Earth Force is about the things that - in my opinion - make our communities better places to live and give me hope for the future: young people, the environment, youth leadership and service-learning. I support Earth Force so that their service-learning process can continue to create youth leaders who know how to address local issues that are important to them.

Earth Force is dynamic and inspiring! The service-learning program empowers students and helps them help their communities. It is wonderful to hear the stories of these kids who worked - to start recycling programs or clean-up nearby creeks - and learned through their projects. It enhances their everyday classroom learning with leadership and community connections.

The Great!

Earth Force is an amazing organization that provides a necessary and valuable service to under-served youth. I had the pleasure of working with EF and group of middle school students in Belen, NM, where we used the EF process to create strong connections between the local environment and the community. Best of all, by learning how to create a community garden, test water quality of the local acequias, plant trees in local parks, and repair a greenhouse at an elementary school, the students realized that they were part of their community as well. They became more invested in their local government, and their community was impressed with the efforts of these students. It's just a great program making crucial connections in important ways.

I have been working with Earth Force for more than ten years. They lead the Global Rivers Environmental Education Network that is supported by my company, General Motors. This program takes a hands-on approach to environmental education by matching schools with local environmental partner organizations and GM facilities to take students out of their classrooms to study local rivers and streams. EF's expertise and networking in the area of environmental education and service learning is unmatched. In addition, they have somehow mastered the ability to work with us unruly manufacturing- types and mold us into dedicated mentors in the program! They are always willing to work through the problems that come up -- which are many! I am very satisfied with the level of service provided by EF. They are very reliable and is always looking ways to improve our program. Deserving of many kudos! (Full disclosure: I am also a board member.)

I am president of Family Nature Summits, a 501(c)(3) organization that hosts an annual gathering designed to get folks outdoors, learning about nature, and having fun. Our mission is to foster thoughtful stewardship of the earth. We have teamed up with Earth Force to host five families from underprivileged and under-served communities in the Denver area to take part in our 2012 Family Nature Summit in Estes Park, Colorado. Earth Force's mission is complementary with our own and we are looking forward having the Earth Force families teach us about the ways that Earth Force helps develop future leaders through community based environmental activism.

I have been working with Earth Force for about a year in the capacity of partner organization. Each staff member I've encountered has been passionate and knowledgeable. The program itself is set up to engage students and teachers in meaningful environmental education and service learning situations. Earth Force GREEN empowers students, teachers, and partner organizations to make a real difference in their communities.

As a Board Member of Greening Forward, I am so thankful for Earth Force. Lisa (CEO) has been absolutely astounding in helping to grow our nonprofit and keep us on the right track financially. I can't thank Earth Force enough for what a great source of mentorship they have been. Not only are they incredibly friendly, but they are extremely professional and do so much good for our communities. I definitely recommend them to all of my friends!

The SEWEE Association is a partner environmental education non-profit that work with Lowcountry Earth Force on service learning projects that benefit our National Forest and National Wildlife Refuges. Earth Force provides teachers with the expertise to help their students execute projects such as reducing the amount of plastic bags used by selling cloth grocery bag. This limits the number of plastic bags littered into the environment which harm the threatened Loggerhead sea turtle. Cape Romain Refuge works hard to protect sea turtle nests on the beaches and now the students work to protect the sea turtles once they are in the ocean. This partnership is mutually beneficial to us at the Sewee Center.

I have worked in partnership with Earth Force, helping students educate their community about the hazards that Diamondback Terrapins face in the salt marshes of South Carolina. Earth Force gave these students knowledge about how to take a problem, research the problem, then take steps to solve it. It is a great model for how to teach students to think critically and be an active citizen.

The Great!

I have witnessed the changes in the students when they have learned about a problem then taken steps to help be part of the solution. They feel confident and empowered by this experience and Earth Force taught them how to do it.

Allow them to do this in more schools.

Working with Earth Force over the last 6 years has changed the way I teach and the way my students learn. While environmental science is nice to talk about, it is meant to be experienced.The support and coordination with Earth Force has showed our students that "Science is REAL!"
The dynamic
people at Earth Force have allowed our district to take over 800 8th Grade students on a water monitoring experience each year. This experience has become the centerpiece of a meaningful science curriculum. By gaining hands on experience while working elbow to elbow with actual environmental engineers, our students develop a passion for their investigations and take ownership of their discoveries.
Bringing together and coordinating all of the different people and entities required to pull this off is not an easy task. We would not be able to provide this powerful impacting experience for our students without the support of Earth Force.

The Great!

Working with Earth Force has challenged me to think even FURTHER outside of the box. I have learned that if you can deliver a meaningful and powerful experience, that you can hand the reigns over to your students and let them lead with their new found passion.

I have been involved with Earth Force for the last decade. The environmental education curriculum that Earth Force provides has been an excellent way for our organization to engage hundreds of youth in community-action projects that have benefited the local environment. Earth Force provides teachers and students with the tools they need to become effective environmental and civic leaders in their community. We have benefited from the support of Earth Force staff, and from being a part of a national movement of youth that are taking action to improve the quality of the environment in their communities and in their schools.

Our project green has expanded in the last two years by almost 100% - doubling the number of teachers and students involved. We now have more teachers and students involved than ever before! We have been able to grow our project because of the work of our Eath Force partners and our local volunteers. Earth Force has been there to help train teachers, offer new and unique possibilities for future programs - especially in involving our students in community service projects - and has been a very large part of our planning follow-up activities for a couple of our inner-city groups to visit spill sites, gather information, and analyze/compare the spill site data to their local Flint area data - a GREAT opportunity for our student participants!
