CELF Membership Program
Embedding Sustainability in School Culture & Community
In winter 2021, CELF launched a Pilot Membership program in response to school communities’ expressed need for resources connecting timely topics to remote and in-person instruction. With a focus on equity, emotional and physical health, and knowledge growth, educating for sustainability (EfS) addresses the spectrum of disparities frequently determined by racial bias, poverty, food insecurity, and environmental health impacts. CELF Membership provides EfS digital resources, long-term curriculum and instruction support, team-based and 1:1 coaching support, and flexible program options.
