    Green Leadership Grants: Students Implement Change

    This program makes available mini grants for elementary, middle and high schools participating in the 2014-2015 Green Schools Challenge (GSC) and Water and Energy Learning and Behavior (WE-LAB) programs.

     

    About the Program

    From October through April, Dream in Green offers mini-grants of $300 each to support Green Team Monthly Challenge activities. The choice of activities are proposed in the GSC/WE-LAB Guidebook but schools may create their own project in relation to the environmental topic of the month.

    The goals of this program are:

      • to support GSC/WE-LAB schools in creating projects that promote environmental sustainability,
      • to empower and develop student leaders through green initiatives at their school, and
      • to develop long-term behavioral change.
