HOW WE BRING CHANGE

Spring Forward's goal is to promote opportunities for the next generation through education on climate change and climate justice. 

We work with schools, camps, and other youth programs to implement fun, interactive lessons in a way that works best for each learning environment and classroom. With access to the right resources, our future leaders will be able to gain the knowledge necessary to improve the state of our world.

Spring Forward has over 25 workshops we offer to schools and youth programs. We believe students learning about climate change in an engaging hands-on manner is essential in preparing them to be conscious global citizens. Being high schoolers teaching youth allows us to connect to the students and have a larger impact on their perceptions around climate change. This also allows us to show students that no matter their age they can be change makers fighting for a better world. Reach out to us if you would like Spring Forward to lead a free climate workshop in your school, class, or youth program!

Educators are always proud when our young people stand up for justice. Climate action has empowered youth to become leaders. The MTA applauds  Spring Forward and organizations like it for stepping in to lead when adults with the power to make change instead opt to protect the status quo. I hope this student-led training serves as an inspiration for educators to integrate climate change and climate action in their work. Educators have the power, through their unions and in partnership with students to bring about the changes we need to protect our planet.

3rd Grade Teacher

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did introducing High Plain’s students to Climate Change last week. They were so inspired by you that one of the students had the idea to collect all their diagrams and turn them into posters to hang around the school with slogans about Earth Day and Climate Change.  

4th Grade Teacher

Thanks SO much!  What a great program.  You two are pros! 

I want to join my voice to my students and really thank you for your great work with us. I feel that the students really learned a few things about social justice and climate change. I also feel that the students had a great opportunity in meeting you and learning how to play Monopoly. Many, many thanks from all the class of  SEI 4th grade.
