Youth Leadership Development 

We empower youth to catalyze community sustainability. 


We do this through year-round training in what we call "Sustainable Systems College," a professional training program for exceptionally self-motivated middle school and high school students who really want to make a difference. Ambassadors typically stay with the program all the way through high school to maximize their training in preparation for college and career.


Our work is real. The learning we do is applied to identifying and solving complex issues. We train ourselves in systems thinking and in developing the patience and persistence to drive positive change. 


Student Ambassadors develop their professional skills through a year round syllabus based on...
