Make It Happen

1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders. Our state depends upon the next generation… And Washington Green Schools is working with you to give them the tools they need to succeed.

Our Mission

Washington Green Schools is a nonprofit organization that guides and supports students and school communities to be leaders for a healthy environment.

Our Vision

Our vision is that every school will teach, model, and practice environmental sustainability and every student will attend a green and healthy school.

Our Values

Community
We build and support authentic relationships with each other and those we serve. 

Equity
We strive to be allies for healthy and just communities, while building our own knowledge and capacity to do this work. 

Collaboration
We listen and respond to community needs because we know our impact is greater when we work together.

Integrity
We earn trust by being respectful, honest, and following through on our commitments. We set high standards and do quality work.

Growth Mindset
We lead with curiosity, recognize that we are always growing, and view mistakes as opportunities to learn.

Our Racial Equity Policy

Advancing racial equity has been a priority for Washington Green Schools since its founding, and in 2017 the organization developed a Racial Equity Policy that was adopted by the Board of Directors. This policy formalizes Washington Green Schools’ vision of becoming an Anti-Racist organization and defines strategies to move it along that path. We invite our community to hold us accountable to our commitments.
