THS Sustainability Club
Thanks to our partnership with SWEP, we have a very active Sustainability Club (Envirolution) that promote environmental stewardship on our campus and in the community. The Envirolution Club connects students to the outdoors, their community and our local environment through comprehensive, action-oriented watershed education and service-learning projects.
District-wide, TTUSD has three different types of Sustainability Clubs, based on the age of our students:
Green Teams (Elementary School)
Eco-Action (Middle School)
Envirolution Club (High School)
Our Envirolution Club utilizes interactive educational service learning projects to empower students to be good global citizens working to ensure adequate resources for a clean and healthy environment. SWEP educators facilitate weekly club meetings with student participants to explore green service learning projects including:
- waste reduction
- energy and water conservation
- energy awareness
- BMP restoration
- native planting
- pollution prevention
Through these projects and meetings, students work together to develop their knowledge, create a sense of civic responsibility, and foster a school environment that emphasizes sustainability. In so doing, they practice data collection, and monitoring, in addition to other important language arts, math and science skills.
Through our "Lead it, Live it" Trashion show assemblies and performances, high school youth empower younger students & community members to take action towards conservation measures in the areas of energy efficiency, water conservation, composting & recycling., Students make the unique Trashion outfits and create the commentary for the show that encourages positive action.
Through the Envirolution Club, students are:
- Increasing awareness of the impact of their actions
- Developing knowledge of sustainable practices
- Creating outreach material including videos, posters, and signage to promote sustainability
- Creating advocacy messages with youth voice in Trashion Show Assemblies and other community events
