Geographic areas served: South Florida
Programs: Dream in green implemented the green schools challenge and the water/energy learning and behavior programs which actively engaged 13,911 students in green teams, 1,281 school teachers and administration staff and 43 facility staff members. 115 schools participated in dream in green's programs and 83 teachers were trained at its professional development training workshop in september 2014.
The Green Schools Challenge program involves students and staff directly in designing and implementing environmental and energy solutions at their schools. The Green Schools Challenge helps local schools save money by reducing their overall energy consumption through student-led conservation initiatives. While conserving energy at their schools, students learn important lessons about environmental sustainability, which are later applied at home and in the community.
During the upcoming 2010-2011 school year, Dream in Green seeks to make the Green Schools Challenge program available to all schools in Miami-Dade County and also expand our Broward County pilot program.
