In a world increasingly driven by organizations or initiatives with stylistic visual "packaging", but often lacking in substance, Earth Force rises above the fray with high quality youth programs with long-term impact. Beyond the logos and graphics, which Earth Force does well, one quickly realizes the organization is about the people and community. Earth Force representatives in the Lowcountry of South Carolina have always been there for us as a partner in a regional education consortium. Phone calls like "Can you help us spread the word about summer camp?" to "Can you help gather a youth group for storm drain marking", are always answered with "Yes, we'll be glad to support the effort!" There are no territory issues, no egos, just the work, a spirit of collaboration, and the community goals. In the field of environmental stewardship, it becomes evident that change begins at the community-level, and often youth are the ripples in the pond that impact their families and communities. Earth Force programs reinforce the community ideal and aim at developing a long-term relationship, not just an episodic event, with youth.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The programs that we partner together on, including after-school youth programs, summer programs, GREEN program, stormwater runoff education programs (such as storm drain marking, wetlands and oyster reef restorations).

Give them more opportunity and resources to expand their efforts.

Earth Force put on a great activity for the kids who came to Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day for us. We really appreciate their willingness to volunteer their time and expertise. The kids all had fun and learned a lot.

My focus and purpose in utilizing Earth Force's curriculum is for service learning as a means to civic engagement. Earth Force makes the assignments and tasks for effective service learning accessible for professionals who may not be trained as teachers, but want to serve youth. Thank you Earth Force for your work!!!

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.

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!

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

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.

The James Island Community Education program has worked with Earth Force in different capacities over the years. Most recently, JICE and Earthforce have partnered with one another for the possibility of being awarded a grant to carry on Service Learning projects through out the community. From the begining, Earthforce was a positive partner and Theresa and Stacey worked diligently alongside many partners that came together for this. Earthforce is known to be the gurus of service learning and working with them reinforces that they are experts in the field. We were ultimately awarded the 4 year grant due to Earthforce's efforts. Getting the grant is one thing, but implementing it on such as large scale as this is another. The partners we have make this possible, and Earthforce's expertise and ability to develop these projects along with them many resources they have, has certainly been the reason why we have gotten this far and been successful. They have been willing to jump in and do what is needed to get the job done, and it is much appreciated!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We received the grant because of their partnership and understanding of the issues that needed to be addressed in the grant, and the best way to go about addressing them getting the most community members involved in the cause.

Expand so they have the ability to work more with the community on a regular basis.

I want to thank Earth Force (Steve and Kurt )so much for allowing the kids to take the trip to Dupont Park. They really enjoyed it. Believe it or not, I chose some of the students who had a few behavioral problems and they were escatic about the things you guys exposed them to. One of the little girl is still looking at the fecal matter that was in the tube that you gave her. Thank you for putting a smile on their faces. I really mean it from the bottom of my heart.

Earth Force provides invaluable funding, expertise, and activities for my students for the past 6 years. They provide equipment and materials for stream monitoring and buses for field trips. Each year they organize a Youth Summit in which students can participate in a variety of environmental activities to enhance their eco-awareness and learn from a variety of professionals within ecological areas. They have provided training for teachers within my district. They fund professional development opportunities for teachers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The areas of student involvement, higher motivation, and independent learning. Students have planned and executed community service learning projects. I have benefited from professional development and training.
