Our Program

Leadership, Education, and Sustainability

Support & Collaboration

Your personal consultants

Your school will receive guidance from one of our sustainability professionals to develop waste reduction strategies by forming a student green team. Students will receive educational lessons and resources on sustainability, gain access to a community of green schools, and coordinate monthly phone calls or school visits with GUOS to troubleshoot projects.

 

Working smarter - not harder - together.

GUOS will support schools to:

  • Build a Coalition

  • Get inspired and informed

  • Educate students on waste reduction & sustainability

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
