What Young People Have to Say

“I learned that it’s possible to make a difference, whether it’s a minuscule or large one, whether the adjustment made was an easy or difficult one. Environmental issues can be helped with very small changes and that is what this project helped me understand. A positive change starts with an individual, a group or a community and every adjustment matters.”

“I learned about how to work as a team. I discovered how important it is to delegate roles based on people's talents and time. I learned how to have productive but fun meetings, as well as communicating ideas effectively to different types of audiences.”
