What is Spring Forward?

Spring Forward is a youth-led climate education organization thats aims to empower students to become conscious global citizens. This understanding about climate change and environmental justice is critical not only for our generation, but for many more to come. We work with schools, camps, and other youth programs to implement curriculum that we have created in a way that works best for their community and learning environment.  We have taught over 50 lessons reaching over 700 students. Learn more about our completed events here.

OUR STORY

Spring Forward started because although some schools are making small steps in the right direction by teaching students to turn off lights and pick up trash, we strive to take climate education a step further and empower students with knowledge about the inherent intersectional nature that the climate crisis brings. Spring Forward is strives to ensure all students understand the basic science, history, and far-reaching consequences of climate change beyond just sustainability. This knowledge will give students the tools and resources to make the right choices in their daily life. We plan to shift students' mindset in a youth to youth approach.

Actively working with us is the best way to help us maximize Spring Forward's impact. Not only is this an effective way for teenagers to take climate action, but they will learn leadership skills, connect with like-minded peers, and engage with students along the way.
