an after-school club
Young Environmental Stewards Club
YES (Young Environmental Stewards) club combines kids’ boundless energy, creativity, and curiosity with caring, supportive teachers, and an award-winning, hands-on science curriculum.
Semester-long after-school club
Kids are encouraged to sample, handle, and perform experiments to develop an understanding of how ecosystems support human life. Field trips, guest speakers, service projects, and family days broaden students experiences. The semester culminates with a Student Research and Service Symposium at Colorado College, where students follow their own interests, applying what they have learned in a final project that will teach others or improve their community. YES Club students become ecological stewards who develop a deeper understanding of their dependence on Earth’s ecosystems and the positive and negative impacts their choices can have, one system at a time!
YES participants spend an entire semester meeting after school once a week for two hours. We provide snacks, materials, field trips, guest speakers, educators and researchers that work with YES club members to discover leadership qualities, technology, and environmental science projects throughout the semester.
