Professional Development


Environmental Charter Schools invites K-12 educators and community leaders to join us for daylong summits that explore best practices in environmental education, service learning and schoolwide greening. Experience our living campuses, engage in collaborative curriculum planning, participate in hands-on field trips and walk away with partnerships and tools to take back to your colleagues!



Green Ambassadors student interns from Environmental Charter High School are available to speak to schools, businesses and organizations in the Los Angeles area. These students can help inspire your students and employees to make tangible changes in their lives and reduce their carbon footprint. Please fill out the speaker request form below to set up a time!
