America's Finest Charter School

Help us...

engage our students through interactive demonstrations,

teach sustainable practices that support a healthy planet, 

and inspire students to adopt sustainable practices in their own lives.

Help us teach our future eco-stewards "All About Worms!"

The humble worm is a hero in our soil and compost! Volunteer to help our students to know these wiggly wonders and how to partner with them for a greener world. During our lesson we will explore the following:

  • Meeting the Worms: Learn how worms recycle food waste into a valuable resource for soil and plants, and why this is an important step in keeping our planet clean.
  • 5 Hearts, No Eyes, & a Happy Home: Worms are different from us in so many ways - and yet, they share many of the same basic needs. Explore a worm’s anatomy and how each unique trait can be provided for while making their home.

Volunteers will help set-up, break-down, and engage our students. Volunteers must be comfortable communicating with youth and able to lift up to 30 pounds. Mask and Covid-19 guidelines of the school attended will be observed.
