What is a Chapter?
A multitude of schools across Colorado have created their own school organizations in order to allow for more environmentally sustainable practices to be projected onto the student body!
What is a Council?
Councils are regions, cities, or school districts that come together to build a coalition and spark dialogue within that specific area. They consist of one student representative per school club and an adult supervisor from either the school district or the municipal government. Each council meets once a month to discuss the needs/efforts of every school, what resources the YSB or district sustainability groups can provide, and all other relevant updates.
The purpose of councils is to promote collaboration between school clubs at a district level, because these clubs will have similar structures, opportunities, and limitations. Through their respective councils, schools can co-host events, share project ideas, and hold competitions to increase productivity and strengthen community bonds. The more we work together, the more of an impact we can make as a collective!
