Mission: Our mission is Environmental Education and Workforce Development for Urban Youth We educate urban high school students about the environment, involve them in service projects that improve their community, prepare them for post-secondary education and the workforce and connect them to opportunities in the growing green economy. We also work with individual citizens, families, neighborhoods and organizations through informal science education to increase community awareness and support of environmental education and workforce priorities, and inspire environmental stewardship and respect.
Results: - We have taught 140 urban high school students about Kansas City’s most serious environmental issues. - We have funded nearly 8,000 hours of paid summer internships for our students. - Our students and volunteers have planted 5 native plant beds, 50 trees and more than 4,000 native shrubs and plants in urban neighborhoods and along Brush Creek. And through our programming our students' science literacy scores have increased, they have changed their behaviors towards the environment, they have increased their social capital networks and 100% have graduated from high school.
