Mentoring

The Envirolution club high schoolers mentor thousands of younger students regularly with elementary and middle school Trashion show assemblies. Approximately 15 Envirolution club members also mentor 3 different Green Teams at local elementary schools (Truckee, Kings Beach and Tahoe Lake Elementary schools). High school club mentors volunteer once a week to work with 4th and 5th grade students with lunch waste audits, implementation of lunch waste reducers such as washable lunch trays and re-usuable silverware, recycling and trash separation education. Up-cycling projects, play-ground clean up, and many other environmental service oriented projects.

Partners: The Green Team mentoring projects are done in collaboration and partnership with the TTUSD sustainability programming overseen by Anna Klovstad. Funding and support from The Shane McConkey Foundation, the TruckeeElementary PTO and The Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation.
