Fostering Young Environmental Stewards…

Insights is excited to be partnering with two local high schools and environmental organizations on a two-year mission to build a strong environmentally conscious future for the border region by providing young community members with skills and experiences to promote a new generation of conservational awareness, thanks to $100,000 in grant funding from the EPA.

Over the next year and a half, supported by the environmental organizations, Environmental Stewardship Clubs at each high school will receive $10,000 to accomplish a hands-on student-led restoration project that solves a community environmental issue. This leadership program will also give students and teachers funding and opportunities for building networking relationships and incorporating several field trips into their curriculum, while their classroom education is enhanced with monthly workshops by environmental professionals.

We are proud to empower students with ecological compassion to make a difference for the planet we all call home.
