Once we got youth and schools involved, government acted fast to better our drinking water situation. Now, we seek to restore our river from ridge to ocean.

“An epidemic of sadness” is emerging among teen girls across the US, with 57% feeling “persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness.”
“If I don’t read the newspaper, I’m uninformed. If I read the newspaper, I’m misinformed."
“The overwhelming prioritisation of problems creates a distorted perception of reality and fosters a false understanding of the world. Including solutions journalism into your media diet has been shown to reduce anxiety, improve mood, increase resilience, restore faith in humanity and improve social cohesion.“
Jodie Jackson, News Literacy Lab
“Youth in the U.S. retreat from negativity at home, school, in streets, on media, everything about the future."
“YL offers them an environment, community and life that is purely positive. Wow.”
Curriculum developer and education fundraiser, USA
“As a nation, we have failed to prepare youth for self-government, leaving America in grave danger. Only 1 in 3 students thinks democracy is vital. "
Loneliness – as no felt capacity to control the world in conjunction with other human beings is a precondition of totalitarianism. While most youth live in civic deserts, teen hero:ines paradize their life and community.
“Voter as usual is no longer good enough."
Teen hero:ines embody the new Able Active Caring Citizen.
"STEM has crowded civic education out of the curriculum."
Student clubs at 22,000 K-12 schools run powerful service-learning and sustainable development projects impacting millions of lives. Over 80% of teachers and students feel enriched.
“Youth and employers ask for new skill building experiences as they face an insecure future and rapidly transforming world."
Youth growing up with high impact projects do not worry about ‘getting a job’.
“Society is not prepared to respond to multiple crises."
This changes once you permit all youth at school to grow up like their multi-award winning hero:ine peers that make all of us sigh – “I wish all youth were like this.”
"Youth-led projects with high impact on real lives and land are the optimal experience-, skill-, friends- and community-generator. For epic wins in real life."
Every societal sector benefits and adds to forming an Enabling Environment.
