Is your class, Green Team, ASB, community service club, science club, or other student group ready to move from classroom learning to environmental action? If your school is participating in the Green Schools Program, assistance, workshops, and recognition are available. See Getting started to sign up for the Green Schools Program.

Assistance

  • Assistance is available for a class or group with any number of students, from a small class to the entire school.
  • To request assistance, schedule a Green Team workshop, or discuss project ideas, contact your King County Green Schools Program representative at 206-583-0655, extension 110 or greenteam@triangleassociates.com.

Resources

Green team workshops

  • Green Team workshops are ideal for leadership groups, environmental clubs, or life skills classes interested in projects such as improving or expanding the school recycling program, stenciling storm drains with "Dump No Waste" messages, planting native gardens, or educating peers or younger students about environmental topics.
  • In-person workshops are available for classes or student groups with 10 or more students. Although workshops are designed for one class or team at a time, the Green Schools Program representative can visit several classrooms consecutively.
  • See EcoConnections classroom workshops to learn about classroom workshops provided for secondary school classrooms.

Recognition

Teams that complete projects are eligible for prizes and recognition.
Green Team actions are important to the success of many King County Green Schools. Schools participating in King County Green Schools Program are recognized when they meet criteria in each program level. Ask the Green Schools Program for assistance.
