WORD ON THE STREET

“This bootcamp turns kids into plastic-fighting superheroes.”

"These young people plan to affect change quickly and for the long term.”

"One kid can do a lot, but if you get a bunch of kids together to do something as a group, they can accomplish a lot more."

“It’s about putting my ideas into action. I have all these ideas about how to save the planet, but I didn’t know how to use them.”
