Green Iowa AmeriCorps | Sustainable Schools

The Sustainable Schools branch of the Green Iowa AmeriCorps program serves as a resource and catalyst for Iowa school districts to build a more energized and sustainable future. Sustainable Schools members serve as Sustainability Coordinators to different school districts throughout Iowa.  The AmeriCorps members work to reduce district-wide energy costs and assist teachers and staff in implementing environmental project-based learning initiatives.  School districts will be able to leverage these AmeriCorps members to save energy costs, as well as engage their students in more outdoor learning opportunities and lessons surrounding environmental sustainability.
