Environment Erie


The Earth Action program is based around service learning. It follows a six step process for students to follow, creating and implementing sustainability projects at their schools. youth action on behalf of the environment, we are expanding our professional development programs for teachers and workshops for the general public.

Our education program goes beyond the classroom and students. We also host numerous public workshops on composting and residential stormwater management.

Earth Action is youth action on behalf of the environment. Earth Action challenges youth and educators to make a difference in the watershed where they live, work and play.

Students attend multiple Youth Training Days throughout the school year which connects them with local professionals who teach students about a specific environmental topic.

Once students complete an Earth Action service learning project they are encouraged to attend the year end Youth Summit. At the summit student showcase their projects they have worked on throughout the year.
