Teens Turning Green is a non-profit organization based in the Bay Area, striving to educate and inspire young adults to promote environmentally conscious and socially responsible choices. Through our youth-led programs on high school and college campuses around the world, students work to mobilize their peers to advocate for a healthy and just planet.
We are looking for Campus Reps to help us build excitement for a program called Project Green Challenge 2013. PGC is a global and comprehensive eco lifestyle challenge for high school and college students designed to raise awareness about conscious living, informed consumption, and the collective impact of individual actions.
Participants will take on a challenge a day, each focused on a unique theme. The goal is to inspire youth to transition from conventional to conscious living by taking small steps that will help to sustain a healthy, just and thriving planet.
Participants share responses, experiences, and deliverables on our website. and TTG’s social media outlets to acquire points and win prizes each day. Up to 14 finalists will be selected to attend the Challenge Finals: Green University, a three-day eco-summit held in the Bay Area in California from November 22 – 24. The PGC 2013 Champion, who is named at Green University, will win a prize package valued at over $12,000.
