Inspiring young people through empathy and connection.

We have expanded our youth empowerment programs—designed to cultivate creativity, social consciousness, and leadership—into a virtual model so that kids everywhere can join the movement.

Plants give us oxygen and help clean our air. Planting trees and native plants is one way we can beautify our communities, reduce pollution, and nurture the planet we live on. Making seed hearts is a fun way to have a positive impact on the environment.

Make an Upcycled Bird Feeder

Did you know that all young people have the power to change the world? Earth Day gives us the opportunity to think about how we can help our planet. Even something as simple as feeding birds can help us understand that we have an impact on everything around us.
