Mission Statement

The Greening Youth Foundation fuses technology, music, sports, literature and old-fashioned fun to teach children the importance of being stewards of our environment. GYF endeavors to achieve its mission through a comprehensive environmental education program which directly works with students and stresses the importance of recycling, water conservation, energy conservation and land conservation. The objective is to re-connect youth and young adults to the outdoors

Description

Greening Youth Foundationprovides interactive, hands-on programs for young people with the intent of having participants develop a deeper relationship with nature, with others and with themselves, resulting in healthier individuals, communities and environments

Greening Youth Foundationprograms are critical because there is a pressing societal need for:

  • Environmental awareness among underserved and disconnected youth
  • Career-bridging and the promise of rewarding futures
  • Skilled and motivated workers in natural resource professions
  • More diversity within the environmental movement
  • Positive programming for youth that emphasizes stewardship, team-building, personal responsibility and leadership development

Environmentally responsible children are the hope for our planet’s sustainable future. One of the goals of GYF is to change the way we consume by educating people about the environmental impact of our personal, institutional and community choices. GYF is focused on such areas as clean energy, fuel alternatives, transportation recycling, forest certification efforts, water consumption and conservation and groundwater depletion. The foundation’s mandate is to help restore the global ecosystem, foster healthy living, and reduce the public’s impact on local environments.
