You can make a significant impact! 

CELF has seen that when a team of teachers comes through our program, the returns on investment are even greater than we imagined. Teacher teams are able to launch and grow a sustainability program at their school more quickly. Once a team of teachers has been through the CELF Summer Institute, they will share the environmental lessons learned with up to 450 students per year. Over 10 years, three teachers can influence up to 4,500 students. The impact grows exponentially beyond the students as three teachers deliver the CELF sustainability message to administrators, other teachers, parents and the community at large.

Your impact as a partner can directly help individual teachers or teams of educators. Some of our partnership opportunities are described below. ALL sponsors will receive:
