WHO IS EARTHCARE?
Earth Care was founded in 2001 to educate and empower young people to create healthy, just, and sustainable communities.
Every year they:
Provide sustainability education for at least 2,000 K-12 students in the Santa Fe Public Schools through environmental,food & health, social justice and service learning lessons.
Provide Earth Care AmeriCorps service-placements to 27 young people ages 17-35 – these Service Members support the work of over a dozen nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools in northern New Mexico. Our Earth Care AmeriCorps Members help us to provide our sustainability education services, provide at least 750 community members with hunger relief services, and more than 800 children and adults with training in healthy lifestyles and sustainable living.
Train 35 young people from Native, Hispano, Latinx, Low-Income and other diverse backgrounds in leadership and social change through our Youth Allies Leadership Training Program.
Support youth organizers and their youth-led projects & campaigns that address social and ecological issues with real-world solutions. Examples of campaigns and projects include the Santa Fe Chapter of Food Not Bombs, Art & Social Change events, the ban on plastic bags, Climate action rallies and marches and many many more. Every year our youth decide what matters to them and we train and support them as they put their skills, knowledge, and creativity to use in service of positive social change.
Provide resources and events that engage thousands of northern New Mexicans – across generations with opportunities to stand up, take action alongside our youth leaders, and make a positive difference in the community to improve environmental and social conditions.
