Brightside and Partnership for a Green City sponsor a Youth Summit for grades 5-12. Students participate in hands-on field projects throughout the school year focusing on environmental issues.
Schools select student leaders to participate in this year long program. Brightside and Partnership for Green City secure trained professionals in targeted environmental areas to work with the schools on a monthly basis. By school year's end, the goal of the program is for students to produce measurable outcomes that impact our local environment.
