Earth Force

Earth Force has an upcoming “no cost” virtual training course on Environmental Action Civics for our Delaware network. This course will help educators, organizations, and trainers expand their toolkit for youth voice, youth-adult partnerships, and civic action. Three virtual sessions cover the Earth Force process, Environmental Action Civics basics, dig into youth-adult partnerships, and offer ongoing coaching once the course is complete. There is no cost to attend and Earth Force can offer stipends in most cases! The dates are February 27 from 2-4 pm, March 5 from 2-5 pm, and March 12 from 2-4 pm Eastern. Please share this great training opportunity. To sign-up or ask a question, email Krysten Dorfman at kdorfman@earthforce.org.

The Pathways to Green Schools program has been generously funded by Energize DE SEU for the 10th year!

The Pathways program offers the following: valuable school energy efficiency audits, follow up assistance to help implement audit recommendations, teacher workshops on fun and informative topics, and support from the National Wildlife Federations (NWF) Eco-schools program. The mini-grant program has increased funding and details will be announced in the next few months for the upcoming grant cycle. Schools can also get assistance with pursuing the NWF Green Flag and/or the DE State Green Ribbon awards. For the first time,  transportation assistance will be available for high schools who want to attend the Delaware Youth Environmental Summit.
