I had a great time participating in the Sustainability Outreach project this past quarter. My partner, Diana Tarantino, and I were mentors at San Jose High School and enjoyed going to visit and work with the Environmental Club on campus and their instructor, Alex Rudnick.
The school just recently started their Environmental Club and the students in the club were very eager to start making sustainable changes on their campus. It appeared that the students had a general understanding of what sustainability is and what they needed to do to be more sustainable on their campus. They also felt it was important to educate others in the community about living sustainably. Diana and I realized any projects and changes these students made would be very rewarding and would have a great impact on their school.
I am very excited with the club’s progress so far and I look forward to working with them next quarter! I am anxious to see the results and impacts of their hard work and efforts to implement a recycling program and become a more sustainable campus.
