If you help Patterson Park Audubon Center (PPAC) and CCAN raise $1600, Green Leaders will be able to use a portion of the funds for our video and other projects. Our goal is to contract with New Lens, a local non-profit whose mission is to inspire systemic change through their work with youth to create media and art. Read more about Green Leaders below:
At PPAC, located in Southeast Baltimore, we are empowering students to communicate climate change to their local community through a brand-new after-school program called Green Leaders. The program is being designed to give middle schoolers content knowledge, leadership and public speaking skills, and other tools to take action.
Green Leaders learn about the complex issue of climate change through trust-building activities, birding, plantings and fun exploratory games. Students are shaping their message in their own voices through the implementation of different projects. These projects include a video, presentations, working within local communities to build bird-friendly habitats, and might evolve into actions like writing to newspapers and speaking with decision makers.
Help our Green Leaders spread the word about protecting our climate for birds and for people!
