Earth Team programs empower urban youth to become lifelong environmental stewards. Students implement action projects that provide active learning about environmental science. They engage in peer-to-peer education activities, sharing their school-based service-learning projects with other students. EarthTeam's leadership opportunities promote pathways to college and environmental science and technology careers.
Earth Team was formed in 1994 by a coalition of educational, environmental, and governmental representatives who saw a need to provide community-based, curriculum connected environmental programs for overwhelmed high school and middle school teachers who lacked the time or resources to create such programs. Many secondary school students and teachers felt disconnected from others of similar interest and discouraged by the lack of interest in environmental issues among the general student body. Earth Team was created to support these teachers and students in connecting with each other, increasing knowledge of pressing environmental issues, and participating in hands-on educational projects.
New projects have been developed over the years as the need has arisen. EarthTeam's current students learn about sustainability, environmental restoration, climate change, waste reduction and watersheds. Earth Team’s highly qualified educators conduct a variety of in-class, field-based and after-school programs that provide leadership opportunities for youth.
