​Green Teens engages middle and high school students in weekly activities to be active, unplug from technology, identify problems and solutions, engage in service projects, and reconnect to the digital world to explore new questions and share their experiences.

At the end of the school year, four of the participating youth are awarded a paid summer internship to assume a leadership role teaching younger youth, developing career skills, and continue their exploration of the natural world.

Participating Schools

  • Burnet Middle School
  • Lanier High School
  • Grisham Middle School
