My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation, Valhalla, NY, USA
I worked with CELF while teaching high school in the Houston area. Not only did CELF show a genuine interest in providing resources for my classes, they wanted to know how they could help, specifically, with what I was already teaching. Often, when teachers work with outside organizations, it seems that those organizations are pushing an agenda; that is not the case with CELF. They provided me with an air quality monitor, along with ideas on how to implement it in my classroom, but ultimately the decision on how to use it was my own. In addition, CELF advocates for authentic learning and they provide an annual conference platform for students to share their voice. This is a great way for a student to cement the year’s learning experiences.
