Chicago Teachers – Lead an environmental club with help from C3!

Club projects include recycling, worm composting, water conservation, anti-idling campaigns, and much more. Teachers involved receive a stipend, materials, project guides, CPDUs and other resources.  This program is at no cost to the school.
