Young RRIsers Action

Call for Student Project Proposals!

Calling all K-16 students who are ready to RRISE UP and take action on environmental, social, or economic injustices in your community. We are funding meaningful school and community projects up to $300! Send us a proposal for what you would do with the money and how it would make a difference (big or small) for your school or community. 

Here are some ideas to get the wheels turning, but we encourage creative thinking! 

  • Start and rally support for a school or community vertical gardens for access to healthy foods.
  • Start a beach clean up crew.
  • Teach other students at your school about environmental issues you care about.
  • Start a school environmental sustainability club. 
  • Use the money to launch a school or community initiative. 
  • Help your community restaurants move to sustainable practices. 
  • Start a food and clothing drive for the homeless in your community. 
  • Host a STEM event for your community.
