Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goals include:
1. To bring environmental-related educational activities/experiences to K-12 students that are missing in the classroom, especially those related to Lake Erie and its environs.
2. To encourage students to stay in school, fine a career that might interest them, and live a satisfying life.

An acceptable economic level for people starts with education for students in what their responsibilities are in self-development and living in an environmentally-sustainable community. We will continue to offer programs and develop new programs that make environmental education fun and STEM oriented for children and adults.

Three of our Board members are or have been directly involved in academic environments as their professions. Our board members bring individual skills to the table, including project management, accounting and finance, science, and advanced education. They have served in these professions as well as K-12 and universities at the undergraduate through Ph.D. levels.

Within about 5 years, every event we have offered has met its goals. We know how to plan, how to assess the results, and how to improve based on the results. We have been fortunate in receiving external funding from companies and foundations for each of our events. We also receive positive feedback from the schools, so much so that the demand is greater than what we can provide.
