About SF Green School
Most environmentalists started to get weary of the ecological well-being of their children's schools, especially in the late 20th century. It is these parents' belief that students of any age should attend greener institutions for a more holistic learning.
It is our belief that a greener school is always more conducive to learning. Thus, we encourage efforts in reducing toxic wastes, incorporating eco-friendly structures in campuses, and the economic regulation of resources in promoting environmental stewardship.
We have worried too much about our children, their schools, and the environment, that in 2001, we decided SF Green Schools should help with making changes.
Making Green Real
SF Green Schools aims to reinforce existing models of operations in educational institutions. While we trust that their methods of instruction are useful in developing the student's academic and social abilities, we opt for a more rounded approach.
We believe that our younger generations should maximize their capacities in the schools they attend. Teachers and the curriculums should be the best mediums for scholarly advancements, backed up by parents and guardians' guidance at home; and the campus should not lack the elements of an ecologically sound environment conducive for learning.
A school needs more than a paint job; we are calling for the real green.
How Do We Work
SF Green Schools is made possible by Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, an open philanthropy organization, which gathers volunteers to realize our shared goal of recreating an efficient ecological dimension in learning.
To date, we have partnered with teachers, instructors, and guardians in more than 200 schools within San Francisco, California. We have more volunteers who help us spread our visions all throughout the country.
SF Green Schools is proudly a non-profit organization that believes in reaping a cleaner and greener environment conducive for optimal learning.
