EnviroEd is a volunteer program first started in the early 1990s and restarted in 2007 after a eight year hiatus. EnviroEd runs under the auspices of both the Harvard EAC and the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), Harvard's public service organization. We work with the Boston and Cambridge Public School systems to provide an after-school program that educates elementary and middle school students about environmental issues. The program is taught by our volunteer teachers, students from Harvard, who go to a school one afternoon a week and work with the students. Teachers are fully trained in classroom management, one-on-one tutoring, and in environmental issues.
Each EnviroEd program lasts eight weeks - about the length of a semester. Each semester, we end with a presentation/project by the students that they complete over the course of eight weeks. Past projects have ranged from recycling programs for school cafeterias to a city-wide Green Day to student-produced movies.
