TeachingGreen is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to enable a sustainable future for life on Earth through comprehensive and empowering environmental education for all. We serve the greater Los Angeles area, with efforts focused primarily on the South Bay cities. Through our Green Life program for teens and adults, we offer a series of six workshops on sustainable living at various venues throughout the South Bay. We also give private presentations for groups, businesses, educational institutions, etc. Our other programs, including the Growing Up Green program for kids, are currently in varying stages of development.

Since its official launch in November 2007, TeachingGreen’s services are increasingly in demand. Its founder wants to build the organization to better meet the needs of the community, and she needs help to do that.
