National Green Schools Society
NGSS Jr. and Elementary Chapters
We’re re-branding as “Project Green Schools!”
“Wait.. hasn’t that always been the name?” Nope – but we’re ending the confusion! We have been “Green Schools” for 10 years, but our web address is still and has always been www.projectgreenschools.org.
With our re-branding comes a new model.
Our new model removes barriers around stipends and creates pathways to funding. Now is the time to start a chapter!
We’re launching a new model in 2017-18 that will help support chapters with fundraising, grants, stipends and scholarships.

We are excited to share some amazing work by our very own Green Schools Student Co-President, Mark Thekkethala. Mark has been working on an international project close to his heart. Here’s his story:
“When my grandfather passed away a few years ago, I wanted to do something substantial in honor of him. My grandfather and I shared a special bond because we both have had to deal with asthma throughout our lives. He served as my role model of what success should look like. One of his most important successes was the work he did with the St. Charles convent in India. After his passing, the St Charles orphanage immediately came to mind, and so a project was born.
Project Green Schools student leaders invited to lead events at the Paris Climate Conference- COP 21.
Over 50,000 world leaders from over 190 nations will meet in Paris to hopefully pass resolutions to combat climate change.
Project Green Schools students raise their voices for creating a healthier, more sustainable future for their generation and those that follow at COP 21.
Our students have already proven themselves at The White House and across the nation. Together with global partners and thousands of schools and organization we #ActOnClimate.
