About Youth Environmental Alliance
North Lauderdale, Florida
Since 2005, Youth Environmental Alliance (YEA) has provided interactive programs that focus on educational sciences, conservation and environmental stewardship. These fun and engaging programs involve youth, companies and the community in preserving and protecting unique ecosystems. YEA offers programs for persons of all ages and abilities.
YEA works passionately to reduce carbon/energy, water and waste in their community through 2 major avenues. First, they have educated up to 19,000 people annually using over 30 different hands-on, exciting environmental classes and activities that empower children and adults with the knowledge and tools needed to make changes to decrease their carbon footprint, conserve water, limit waste and reduce their impacts on the environment. Second, they bring the community together to improve the environment and their lives by engaging them in meaningful and impactful eco-action.
YEA’s community-based dune restoration efforts led to the creation of resource management plans in 6 coastal municipalities, a new State Bill to protect coastlines and new requirements to install vegetated dunes. Learn more at YouthEnvironmentalAlliance.com.
