Sierra Club BC's Education Program fosters rich relationships with nature and promotes action for the environment. The Education Program connects youth and teachers with Sierra Club BC's current campaigns.
Since 1998, we have been providing highly interactive in‐class education programs for up to 10,000 students a year, supporting B.C.'s youth and teachers.
To support youth, we deliver multiple visits to participating classrooms over the school year, assist classes in our Take Action! Contest, and facilitate youth-driven sustainability projects for grades K-12.
To support teachers, we have aligned our programs with B.C. Ministry of Education curricula. Our programs are centred on up-to-date science and ecology, and promote diverse environmental values and stewardship actions.
Our website contains a variety of downloadable learning resources to support B.C.’s teachers, students, staff from ENGOs, park interpreters, nature centre staff, and anyone else with a passion for environmental learning!
Want the Education Team to visit your community?
Our Sponsor-A-School program is one of the most effective ways to sign classrooms up for our interactive, science-based environmental education programs. Sponsorship support can help bring Sierra Club BC to your community of choice for up to two weeks of school programs! Don't have a particular school in mind? Choose from our patient, wait-listed schools.
