TRY for the Environment Presented by Lauren Traister, 4-H Teen and Leadership Coordinator, University of Vermont Extension

TRY (Teens Reaching Youth) is an environmental leadership opportunity for youth in grades 7-12. It is a teen-led environmental education program with an embedded service-learning component designed to teach environmental literacy and responsibility to younger youth. TRY for the Environment includes five program areas that connect young people to real-world environmental problems in which they can be key change agents helping to create real-world solutions. Each program area curriculum - energy FUNdamentals, waste solutions, food systems, forest and trees and TRY 4-H20 - includes six one-hour lessons that are fun, hands-on, and easy to teach! TRY Lessons are taught by TRY teams consisting of 2-4 teen teachers and adult mentor who are trained to teach specific lessons to younger students. This program received the Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence for three consecutive years.
