“The CELF program exceeded my highest expectations. You have inspired, challenged and equipped us for a tremendous school year filled with sustainability education programs for our students. Your knowledge, energy, commitment and teaching skills are unbelievable. You helped our teachers develop appropriate curriculum and lessons and have given them the knowledge and tools to be successful.”

Since its inception, CELF has provided consulting services, professional development programs and student training programs with a goal of making sustainability education an integral part of the K-12 learning experience. Our programs for educators and students complement our consulting services by providing training in education for sustainability and offering a multitude of ways to bring sustainability education into the classroom.

CELF programs use sustainability as the underlying context in which to integrate teaching and learning, decision-making, civic engagement, community partnerships and campus practices. The lens of sustainability transforms curriculum, school operations, physical surroundings and school-community activities and fosters the creation of responsible citizens.

We offer both standardized and customized programs, and can modify our standard programs to meet our clients' goals and timeframe.

We are proud to say that since its inception, CELF has worked with more than 8,000 teachers and school leaders and more than 800,000 students from 2,800 schools. This is just the beginning of our work to bring systemic change to K-12 education and we look forward to working with you.
