Climate Action Pathways for Schools (CAPS) partners with schools to provide inspiring climate education programs and implement projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while saving money for the school district. We develop project-based learning programs to prepare students for highly skilled career pathways and help them develop projects that mitigate climate change. At the same time, these projects reduce operating costs for school districts. We aim our climate action program primarily towards under-resourced schools.
The CAPS programs go beyond classroom education by harnessing the interest and commitment of students to learn about climate science and apply that knowledge to solving real world problems at their schools and contribute to growing global efforts to reduce greenhouse gases in local communities.

Volunteering with CAPS has been fantastic! I joined the team almost a year ago and have spent the majority of my time helping the Board of Directors to raise money, enhance our online presence, and develop marketing materials. All my work has been virtual and my managers have been very accommodating, supportive, and encouraging. Working with a team of people so passionate about advancing education and protecting the environment has been wonderful!
