Volunteer Hours - Teens Turning Green

Every parent to a high school student knows that a certain amount of volunteer hours is a requirement for graduation.

Here’s a great – and fun -way to get in some of those hours: Teens Turning Green has an initiative in October called the Project Green Challenge. This nationwide challenge is for students, a group of friends or an entire classroom to see how a school can transition from conventional to conscious living. The 30-day challenge will raise awareness about the choices we make and about the impact that these choices have on, not only our community, but on the world in general. Each day, for 30 days, a new challenge will be sent via email.

The challenges will cover everything from food, fashion, tech, fitness and so on. A student’s amount of free time to dedicate to the cause determines the level of involvement, ranging from green, greener or greenest, for each challenge. The greener the challenge, the larger the involvement and the greater the chance of winning some very cool prizes, plus a chance to be invited to San Francisco for a 2 day educational summit and be part of a team of eco-experts in creating a platform for social action.

It is easy to sign up for this world-changing initiative. Plus, think of the all the volunteer hours that can be accumulated in just 30 days, but check first with your local school for approval.
