The EcoRise Teacher Ambassador Program seeks to recognize leaders in sustainability education and strengthen our relationship with these inspiring educators. EcoRise Teacher Ambassadors are experienced EcoRise teachers that have demonstrated a strong interest in and commitment to the EcoRise mission and core values. Teacher Ambassadors regularly and effectively implement EcoRise curriculum, eco-audits, green-school projects, and micro-grants, in addition to leveraging EcoRise support services and connecting with community partners and the larger EcoRise teacher community.

We are now accepting applications for our 2018-19 EcoRise Teacher Ambassador Program! Learn more about the program and requirements here. Current teachers can apply via our online platform at Question? Please email us at
