I have worked with this organization in many capacities for the past few years. At large events the staff and volunteers are always extremely nice, helpful, and informative in any way shape or form they can be. They are also very welcoming of others into their efforts and their community, which is extremely large, resourceful, and exciting! They are engaging students in very authentic ways, appealing to their interests and encouraging them to be leaders and take their own actions to make the world a better place. They provide guidance to students when necessary and are working on forging important networks. I have personally been involved with establishing connections between those working on similar projects as a volunteer for the organization and in working with them, I have learned a great deal. I would highly recommend them as an exciting, ever-expanding nonprofit doing very innovative and important work on the local, national, and global levels.

I really enjoyed volunteering at the GreenSchoolsNYC resource fair and have since helped them get new schools to join, including my childrens'.
