Earth Force, Inc. came to our Department's "Take Your Kid to Work" day. The activity was great! The kids were engaged and did not get bored. They learned about teamwork, idea sharing and the environmental impacts of population on our water supply at the same time. The parents assisting with the exercise also enjoyed the activity. We are definitely hoping they will come back next year. Thank you Earth Force!

Serving a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA with Earth Force proved to be an extremely rewarding experience for me. So much so that when the opportunity presented its self to serve an additional year I welcomed it. The Earth Force six step service learning process is a great way to engage the youth of a community to address issues they might see every day but don’t feel empowered enough to take action. Unlike more traditional service projects in which students are assigned a task the Earth Force processes gives the students a say in choosing the issue, researching it, and designing the project. In this way they become much more engaged and energized in what they are hoping to accomplish. Earth Force is a Truly Great Non-profit.

I am a firm believer that the future depends on the success of organizations like Earth Force. Our community is lucky to have people that not only care about the world we leave for upcoming generations but give them the tools to make a sustainable difference themselves as well. I've volunteered and worked with the members of Earth Force in the Charleston Lowcountry for the last five years and could not be more grateful to them for teaching me and others the value of the planet we call home.

Earth Force has supported me in my efforts in teaching service learning projects about the environment for several years. If I need something, all I have to do is ask and they will get it for me. Whether it be funding for a purchase, help with a delivery, an expert speaker, help with writing a grant, Earth Force is watching my back. I couldn't do service learning with all of my classes without their help.

I was part of the Youth Action Board in high school and really felt empowered that I could help make Charleston a more environmentally friendly place. I had many wonderful experiences with Lowcountry Earth Force and therefore, got my friends to join in. We worked on community murals for a Downtown park renovation, my high school's Ecology Club wrote and received a grant for our end of the year community service kayaking project and I learned about the way non-profit organizations operate. Volunteering with Lowcountry Earth Force has motivated me to want to go into environmental education to continue doing the work that they do for our community.

I am a middle school teacher in an "at risk" school in the Dallas Ft Worth are. I teach 7th grade science and we started the Earth Force program last year as an after school activity. Our group carried out a paper recycling program, started a school discovery garden, and did research on a bio remediation project for a storm drainage ditch that runs through the middle of our school property. We were recognized as the South west ecological club of the year by Staples last year. Partially because of our success the district expanded the Earth Force student learning service project and it is now a part of the 7th grade curriculum for the district and it is now in all 7th grade campuses in our district. This year we had 250 kids come to classes on a Saturday to learn more about our Trinity River basin. Our school has kept the the same projects from last year and has continued to work on them, we have also added plastic recycling, al recycling, 3 different habitat restoration projects, and up grading our Discovery Garden with a pond and greenhouse. The kids are the driving force both in labor and ideas for these projects. It allows the students to take control over an important part of there lives and teaches them the importance of planning, cooperation, and working wthin the system to accomplish their goals.

Start the project earlier in the school year and allow more time to carry out the service portion of the project. I would like to see a way to carry it out in the summer as well.
