Mission Statement

The mission of Comprenew Environmental is to inspire the local community to live and work in a sustainable manner. This mission is accomplished through the mentoring of inner-city high school youth who, along with committed staff and volunteers, provide the community with electronics recycling services that represent the best possible practice.

Description

Comprenew is a non-profit organization located in downtown Grand Rapids. Comprenew Academy is an after-school and summer training program for high school students in Grand Rapids with the purpose of developing environmental champions who love business.

At Comprenew, our community's future business leaders learn that profit and environmental stewardship go hand-in-hand. Using the business of e-waste recyclingas a resource for application and learning, we teach our students how corporate environmental stewardship is good for business. To date, Comprenew is the only organization in West Michigan incorporating this philosophy in a business apprenticeship environment to inner-city youth in our community.
