Sprout Up provides free, college-student led environmental education programs to 1st and 2nd grade classrooms throughout New York City. We teach children vital concepts in environmental science, sustainability, and the unique New York City ecosystem that surrounds them. During the earliest stages of their educational development, we encourage kids to think in new ways about the world around them through activities, experiments, and discussions, inspiring them to bring the message of environmental stewardship home to their families and friends. In this way, we cultivate the next generation of passionate caretakers of the earth and promote sustainability from the youngest members of society up.
