The National Green Schools Society is an organization that empowers students to push sustainable practices through project-based initiatives. NGSS works to enable students to use STEM to create solutions and implement initiatives in their school and in their community through capstone projects. By doing this NGSS aims to create Green Leaders for the future. NGSS is led by projectgreenschools.org
For more information visit the official website here.
Anyone can join NGSS, however, you only be recognized for your projects and initiatives by tracking your time, efforts and successes directly with NGSS. Incorporating NGSS as a part of your school can be done in a class, as a club or on an individual level.
A drive for STEM and the environment combined with an ability to execute a plan that shows impact in the community is all that is required for recognition by the NGSS.
There is no required time commitment for this extracurricular project. It is a self-driven initiative that allows you to receive recognition for your achievements if they deserve recognition.
