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.

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.
