Myself and other Global Glimpse participants accepted into the program will ask for the volunteering support of Zumba teachers who will run the classes, will advertise through online invitations, posters, and flyers, and also bake healthy snacks to sell as part of a bake sale at the event. To attend there will also be an entrance fee. All donations/money collected will be put to support other students in being able to travel internationally and have a valuable experience.

We want to build an "outdoor classroom" that will use the land, sea, and sky of our Bronx campus to provide opportunities to learn and protect our environment, share with our neighbors and give our students opportunities to gain practical skills and have outside fun. We will build and grow a container garden producing flowers for our neighbors in the nursing home next door, vegetables for a soup kitchen on Fordham Road, pollinator plants to support bees and butterflies, and other plants that are native to this area, like berries, sassafras, and June berries. We want to restore the Indian kettle in the river and add an oyster restoration project to help filter the river naturally. We want to add a weather station to help forecast severe weather since our neighborhood and school were crushed by Hurricane Sandy. All of these things will help us to lead environmental stewardship efforts in our corner of the Bronx.

Students will be able to give a 3-5 minute talk on their personal connection to sustainability, climate change, and environmental justice. They will be able to share their WHY in a way that inspires and engages others. They will pass out materials that they co-developed with Otis College students that encourage people to “be green” as well as follow up with schools and organizations to find out how their talk impacted them. Student interns will also identify how sharing their story has affected their perception of themselves as leaders and community changemakers. We will collect the number of people reached by the speaker series. Students will also train other students in storytelling on Saturday, May 6 during the Green Ambassadors Institute (www.greenambassadors.org/register).

Our hopes are to pick out a variety of different native plants that have certain "roles". We will be able to weave baskets, create paints, make teas, medicines, foods, and much more. Our main goal is to create a safe, calming space, while learning about the natural world.

To obtain and organize the items to create the care packages, my Roots & Shoots club will hold a collection drive outside of our local department store for supplies. When customers go inside, club members will provide them with a list of recommended items that while they are shopping could pick up and donate to us on their way out. To create the packages, the club will hold an event at school to discuss the problem of homelessness including facts to rid of the stigma surrounding these people and instead find ways to support them during this difficult time even beyond care packages.

We spread the world, collect the bottles, sort and rinse them, and then return them.

We are going to use the month of December to educate people on what is happening and why it is important. We will go on our high school's news videos, newspaper, and create posters and morning announcements to get the word out. During January, we will sell pins that say "I Stand with Standing Rock" (we figured more people would donate to the cause if they know what it is first). The money gathered from the pins will be donated to the efforts to stop the pipeline and protect Native Americans.

To complete this project my Roots & Shoots group will hold a week long Thanksgiving Food Drive collecting nonperishable goods from the community and a 2 week long fundraising competition between the different parts of my school to raise money for the turkeys. My club will also decorate boxes to decorate in order to put the 150 meals in to deliver to the families.

We will begin by ordering pens and bags. We will also create forms to give it each guest. With this we will ensure that each guest feels as welcome to our church, in hopes that they will return.
