EnviroEd is the great program that it is due to our qualified and enthusiastic teachers. Our program is entirely 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.
