ACE is doing an incredible job of inspiring youth to take action in the climate movement. I was fortunate enough to work closely with ACE for 2 years and in that time I saw hundreds of youth inspired by ACE's scientific approach to explaining climate change. They've reached over a million high schoolers and thousands of those students have become leaders in their community: planting gardens, building bikes, promoting recycling, organizing green proms and car pools to school. Some of ACE's climate leaders have even taken their story all the way to DC to our nation's leaders. ACE's unique approach of focusing on the science and the solutions empowers students to get involved, rather than presenting them with a doom and gloom view of climate change. ACE also uses the most up-to-date and innovative technology to reach students. The multi-media presentation is customizable for each audience and ACE mainly communicates with it's students via social media and text messaging - the way they communicate with each other!

ACE hosts incredibly dynamic, smart, interesting, hip, and engaging assemblies about climate change. Their presenters are filled with heart, and are talented educators and youth advocates/encouragers. They've got their fingers on the pulse!

Alliance for Climate Education is the most effective environmental non-profit in the country. They are teaching a generation of students the basics of climate change in an incredibly entertaining assembly, providing them with tools and support for moving from education to action by supporting green action teams at high schools. In only a few short years they've educated over a million students on the causes, consequences, and solutions to the climate crisis. At a time when the science of climate change is being attacked there is no organization doing a better job of educating and engaging Americans.

ACE provides outstanding assemblies that teach middle and high school students about the causes and consequences of climate change. They do this using a dynamic, creative, animated presentation that is narrated by the presenter. They also offer actions that students can take to help make a difference. The first time I saw this assembly I was so impressed with how they presented such a difficult topic!
