From Classrooms to Communities: Amador Local Leaders Take Waste Sorting on the Road!

Calling all eco-warriors!  The Amador Valley High School Local Leaders of the 21st Century are on a mission to empower the next generation of environmental stewards. Since the start of this year, these dedicated high schoolers have visited 4 elementary schools in Pleasanton, educating nearly 200 students on the power of proper waste sorting

The Local Leaders program taps into this passion, demonstrating that youth can make a real difference. By engaging younger students, they’re not only teaching essential sorting skills but also fostering a sense of environmental responsibility that will last a lifetime.

One of the program’s many secret weapons? Trash-ket Ball! This interactive game uses beanbags depicting everyday items. Students analyze the items and shoot them into the corresponding bin, turning waste sorting into a fun and educational competition.

This initiative perfectly aligns with the Go Green Initiative’s mission to empower future environmental leaders.

Inspired by the Amador Local Leaders? Join the movement! Learn how your school or organization can implement similar waste-sorting education programs with support from GGI. Let’s work together to shoot for a sustainable future!

Local Leaders Youth Outreach program are scheduled to continue next school year as well. This presentation takes place during the lunch period of our Local Leaders. Grade levels have similar but different sets of presentations to engage each different age group! If you are a PUSD teacher or know one who might be interested, please contact us at [email protected]
