Education

Environmental Education programs for middle school students and homeschoolers of all ages.

climate Action Middle School Program

Explore! Engage! Give Back!

Greenagers is able to reach students even before high school with our after-school and summer programs for kids. With Greenagers staff, middle schoolers venture outdoors to explore, engage, and ultimately give back to the environment and community. We encourage students to make more informed decisions about how they treat the world around them through hands-on activities involving climate change, nature observation and appreciation, and service-learning projects for those within the community and our international neighbors. Each season ends with service learning projects through which the kids help a community member or organization, learn an important skill (e.g. woodworking, gardening), and experience how a community is supported and strengthened.

Our partners and resources include: Berkshire Natural Resources Council, The Nature Conservancy, Berkshire Environmental Action Team, Housatonic Valley Association, Project Learning Team, Turtle Tree See, Woven Roots Farm, Mass Audubon, Railroad Street Youth Project, Berkshire Botanical Gardens, Berkshire Community Action Council, Native Habitat Restoration, Great Barrington Land Conservancy and Housatonic River Walk, Project Sprout at MMRHS, and Race Mtn.Tree Services.

Middle school can be challenging for many kids, and we aim to show these kids that their community offers beauty and inclusion, and a chance for them to maintain that beauty.

Greenagers offers monthly nature education workshops for homeschool students. Each month features a different topic, from tracking to birding to tree ID and much more. Led by Greenagers’ own Elia Del Molino, these workshops offer a wonderful way to be outside together, learning and exploring the many wonders around us. For more information, and to be notified of upcoming events, please contact Samantha at office@greenagers.org. Upcoming events are also posted on our blog.
