sure we can works with students from kindergarten to graduate school to spread awareness of our mission of environmental stewardship and social inclusion
We work with local schools and after school programs to host tours about recycling and sustainability, coordinate volunteer days for students who would like a hands on experience, and are developing long term partnerships to facilitate composting and recycling in nearby schools.
Many college and graduate students have taken interest in Sure We Can and have focused their research on it. We’re so proud and impressed by the wonderful work we’ve seen from these students!
