Learning with Leaders

Terrific things happen when students meet experts in green business, design and technology. The students begin to see the possibility of a positive future. They start to see solutions and may envision themselves as part of those solutions. Sustainability concepts become relevant, and the wheels start turning when they consider all the potential areas of interest and career possibilities.

Mutual Inspiration

That inspiration and ability to see the relevance are two reasons why CELF offers the Learning with Leaders program. Each event connects middle and high school students, teachers and community members to specialists in fields like corporate social responsibility, green product design, green building and law. Hearing what these experts have to say, face-to-face, inspires students and builds their attention to sustainability.

The presenters also benefit. They get an energy boost from connecting with the kids who will be living in the world they are building. They are planting the seeds for a future workforce and marketplace!

Program locations vary to encourage participation from across the Tri-State region. If you would like to host a Learning with Leaders Program at your school or facility, please contact us with a suggested topic and date(s).
