Dream in Green’s mission is to empower individuals, especially youth, to lead in the response to climate change and other environmental challenges facing South Florida since 2006. We assist diverse organizations, including schools, households, local governments and businesses to reduce their environmental footprint. By establishing partnerships in our community, we develop, implement, and oversee educational programs and workshops that promote environmentally sustainable behaviors among all age groups, with a particular emphasis on K-12 students. To date, our programs have served 340 unique schools and over 90,000 individuals, roughly 74,000 of which were K-12 students. Our partner schools have helped to conserve 37.8 million kilowatt hours of electricity, which saved 3.5 million dollars and reduced or offset 57.7 million pounds of carbon emissions–which is the same as taking 3,698 homes off the electricity grid for one year.
