Project Learning Tree offers GreenWorks! grants up to $1,000 to schools and youth organizations for environmental service-learning projects that link classroom learning to the real world.
Students implement an action project they help design to green their school or to improve an aspect of their neighborhood’s environment.
The projects partner students with their whole school, local businesses and/or community organizations, and provide opportunities for student leadership.
The funds can be used by students to implement recycling programs at their school, conserve water and energy, establish school gardens and outdoor classrooms, improve a forest, or restore a natural habitat, for example.
To be eligible, applicants must have attended a PLT workshop, either in-person or online, that provides training, lesson plans, and other resources to help integrate these projects and environmental education into your curriculum or youth programs.
The annual deadline to apply is September 30.
Funding will be distributed in December 2017.
