Mission: The Green Schools Initiative believes it is essential to protect children’s health, at school and in the world beyond school. The organization works to catalyze and support “green” actions by kids, teachers, parents, and policymakers to eliminate toxins, uses resources sustainably, create green spaces and buildings, serve healthy food, and teach stewardship.
Approach: Full Circle Fund helped Green Schools to devise a strategic business model for a statewide, locally implemented certification program. Members assisted in building high-level, key strategic partnerships with public and private entities who would become co-sponsors of the statewide certification program. Members’ involvement allowed Green Schools to create an exciting parent outreach and mobilization campaign as well as establish and implement a sustainable growth plan for the organization.
