Colorado Youth Councils
- Aurora Academy Youth Council has a group of 12 students working
through energy audits and water quality and use for their school and
- Students at the Odyssey School are working on composting with
help from students at Johnson and Wales University and parents.
So far the students and their partners have investigated the amount
of potentially compostable material going into the trash as part of
their lunch program. Students interviewed custodians, lunch
program staff, and a nonprofit compost facility director. They
are well on their way to designing and implementing a compost
program to be rolled out this spring. Throughout this process
students are are documenting and reflecting on their work. The
students and their adult mentors will be presenting at the Colorado
Alliance for Environmental Education Conference in April.
