We have found a niche in mobilizing youth to become active around issues that have a direct impact on personal and environmental health. By building and executing innovative and high impact projects, programs, toolkits, and advocacy campaigns in collaboration with diverse partners, students have the opportunity to affect tangible, positive change in daily life, schools, and communities. That is powerful. Metrics speak, but the voices of our campaign members and partners speak with an incomparable passion. Empowerment and action is magical!
We measure success in lives touched, mindsets shifted, consciences activated, habits transformed, approaches impacted… all towards a more conscious way of life.

Teens need to be leading the eco-revolution, and TG is perfect for helping with that. Since working with TG, I feel more empowered to change my own life, and encourage those around me to do the same. I am more inspired to take on the challenge of creating a greener and safer world, where as before, I wouldn’t have even known where to start or how to get others involved.
