Why be part of SGW?

It’s a good example for kids to save the environment, and to learn the many ways to save it.

Carolina Darcy, F.A. Day Middle School

SGW encourages students to make the world a better place by dividing that task into small, manageable actions, whether it’s helping a 5-year-old learn about caterpillars, or running the magic energy bike.

Julian Phillips, Brown Middle School
SGW is a great opportunity for students to get involved in their community and work with others to create positive environmental change. Through SGW, I have been able to participate in science fairs, sneaker drives, presentations, and more! I feel like I have made a difference in my community.
Benjamin Borhegyi, Newton North High School
