We're raising money for the
fundraiser led by
Greening Forward is a youth-driven network of over 2,000 young changemakers, ages 5-25, working together to support each other's vision of a more sustainable world. Through peer-to-peer mentorship, +110 online skill-building resources, and over $35,000 in grant support, Greening Forward youth across the world are able to drive the environmental change they wish to see in their communities.
What I'm Raising Money For
We are raising $2,000 to support our mini-grants program. When young people have a vision for their community, they are able to come to Greening Forward youth like them for support and guidance. Our mini-grants program will plant over 200 trees and fund recycling programs that recycle 60 tons of waste. Through Greening Forward, youth are given substantive opportunities to lead community change.
Why You Should Give
Young people funding young people to do environmental programs at the national and international level is a unique niche that Greening Forward holds and sets us apart. We find that when young people are leading programs for young people, other young people are more responsive and engaged. This peer-to-peer inspiration goes a lot further than when adults lead programs for young people.
