Project Learning Tree (PLT) offers GreenWorks! grants of up to $1,000 to schools and youth organizations for environmental service-learning projects that link classroom learning to the real world. Students implement an action project that they help design to green their school or to improve an aspect of their neighborhood’s environment. The proposed project should incorporate service learning, exemplify student voice, involve at least one community partner, secure at least 50 percent matched funds (in-kind acceptable), and be completed in one year. To be eligible, applicants must have attended a PLT workshop, either in person or online. The workshop provides training, lesson plans, and other resources to help integrate service-learning projects and environmental education into the curriculum or youth programs. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
