I was constantly encouraged by the way the BTCEA staff worked with students to achieve lofty environmental impact goals and how insightful their feedback was. BTCEA was cognizant of the challenges and limitations of the district yet encouraged us to find new and creative ways to support student leadership in sustainability. BTCEA’s resources, leadership, and support significantly improved the overall impact of the districts waste reduction initiative, leading to more students engaged and less food scraps in the landfill.

I have had the pleasure of working with Be the Change Earth Alliance (BTCEA) over the past five years in multiple capacities. As a student in secondary school, I used their curriculum in some of my classes and had their support in local school action by participating in their Waste Watcher’s (waste audit) program. As someone who works in the field of youth engagement and supports local student sustainability leaders, I recognize the importance of the programs and services that BTCEA offers in our school communities.

As a teacher member of the Delta School District Green Team and the teacher sponsor of the Delta Youth Sustainability Network, I have had the ongoing privilege of working with Be The Change Earth Alliance. As an increasingly active stakeholder in our school district, BTCEA was eager to support student leadership in sustainability and worked with myself in establishing a Delta Youth Sustainability Network. They not only helped build the capacity of the youth to take on ambitious climate action projects, but also of myself, an experienced educator.
