Participants - Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation


Here are just some of the schools that have benefitted from CELF’s work, whether through teacher participation in the Summer Institute or through our consulting services and programs for students.

Since 2003, schools and educators have worked with CELF to advance sustainability with their students. In 2020, faced with a global pandemic, our organization pivoted to digital delivery, which opened our doors wider than ever before to educators from around the United States and beyond, to urban and rural communities with highly diverse demographics. From our home offices in Westchester, New York, and Houston, Texas, our community of sustainability-minded educators continues to expand rapidly.
The interactive map below displays all schools that have participated in our programs in 2021. Click on a pin to view program participation and school demographics.
