Earth Care's mission is to educate and empower young people to create healthy, just and sustainable communities. We do this through service-learning, community organizing, and social entrepreneurship.
Earth Care is a youth empowerment and community development organization. At Earth Care we educate, empower and support the positive development of young people in a way that engages their natural innovation and creativity to create healthy, just and sustainable communities. Our framework places youth at the center of everything we do. The organization and our collaborations support young people with integrated programs that address their empowerment while working together with them to realize a shared vision for a sustainable future.
Our approach to our mission combines cross cultural relationship building & social justice, systems thinking, and sustainable development to engage youth in four areas of community development: Food & Health, Education, Civic Engagement, and Economic Opportunity.
We believe that young people have the inherent capacity to solve problems and that through the empowerment and engagement of youth, sustainability is within the reach of all communities.
