Grades of Green started just nine years ago at one school in Southern California. Since then, we have grown to inspire and empower more than half a million students across 44 states and 20 countries to take action and care for our environment. Your support enables us to mentor young people and provide them with the leadership skills, resources and connections they need to solve today’s environmental challenges. Even though these kids are collectively conserving (literally) millions of gallons of water, diverting tons of waste from landfills and creating measurable differences – the biggest impact is their voice. At Grades of Green we’re mobilizing an entire generation to tackle local challenges that lead to global impact.
