Our Mission

At Asawa SOTA’s Environmental Club, we improve campus sustainability and engage with climate activism. We go beyond the walls of our school by forging partnerships in education, business, and government. We are working to be the model environmental high school for the Bay Area and beyond.

What We Do

Improving Our Campus Practices

We aim to exceed the sustainability goals set by our school district: waste reduction, water conservation, green energy, sustainable transportation, and connection to nature.

Creating an Environmental Culture

Environmentalism must involve the entire school community, especially the student body. In order to promote education and engagement around sustainability, we organize assemblies, festivals, field trips, presentations, and strive to involve students in our Environmental Club.

 

 

Working In the Larger Community

Thinking outside the box, or rather outside the classroom, is a key aspect of who we are. We recognize that the environmental goals we aspire to achieve are larger than ourselves and our school. We strive to engage with our community by cleaning local beaches and parks and fundraising for environmental and humanitarian organizations. 

 

 

The Environmental Leadership Core

Environmental Leadership Core is a small group of dedicated student leaders within Environmental Club who take on club projects, events, and organization. Leadership Core is an integral part of the Asawa SOTA Environmental Club.

Our Story

Environmental Club was founded in 2016 by Grace McGee and Kyle Trefny in August of their freshman year. Nestled between Twin Peaks and Glen Park Canyon in San Francisco, the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts campus is surrounded by nature, which inspires us to protect the planet. Through student leadership, we represent the youth voice as we take on projects and partner with groups throughout our school, our district, and our community.

Our Projects

We work towards reducing our waste, emissions, and overall carbon footprint through student-led projects. We encourage our fellow students to make eco-conscious decisions and take a vested interest in environmental activism. As a student-founded and student-led club, we work together along with community members to plan and complete our projects

Our Donations

Members of the Asawa SOTA Community are aware of current world events. In the face of international environmental issues, including deforestation, species extinction, hurricanes, and fires, our student body mobilizes and raises money for worthy organizations. Here are the groups we’ve supported:

“There are ‘Green Clubs’… And then there are ‘GREEN CLUBS!’ The Green Club at SOTA is an all-caps GREEN CLUB. Surely doing no small part to forward environmental education and conservation through exemplary follow-through, commitment, and professionalism.
