Another school year has ended and we have a lot to celebrate in our mission to teach the next generation of green leaders. Relay Education accomplished many successes during the 2022-2023 school year. This post focuses on the work we accomplished with children and youth through our school programs this past school year.
We will be sharing more other projects, like the Green Skills Academy, in future posts. Here’s the impact we made in classrooms across the country.
