We are building the infrastructure necessary to scale and serve communities both locally and globally. We have recently moved our entire curriculum from print to an online platform and are developing innovative tools that allow us to support and connect teachers, youth, and the green community across the word. To learn more about our exciting expansion this year, read our 2015-16 New School Year Update.


Students across the world often lack access to strong project-based, STEM-focused programs that connect the outside community to the classroom. This is particularly true in low-income inner city and rural schools, which face a myriad of social, environmental, and resource challenges. We are committed to doing our part to close the achievement gap through partial financing opportunities made by possible by our generous donors. Historically, roughly 75% of EcoRise’s students have been classified as economically disadvantaged.
