The goal of the Teen TreeHuggers organization is to provide teens an international platform where they can make their voices heard to tackle wildlife conservation, environmental, and humanitarian issues. Teens, no matter where they come from, will have the opportunity to become journalists known as TreeHuggers. Their work can be in any artistic form, including essays, short stories, poems, music, photos, videos, animated shorts, paintings, drawings, and sculptures. One of the long-term goals of the Teen TreeHuggers organization is to create a grant fund to support TreeHuggers’ conservation events, such as a fundraiser or beach cleanup, as well as provide art supplies and other necessary resources for impoverished teens. These goals will be accomplished through various means. The organization’s galleries will first be online through the Teen TreeHuggers’ website to display our journalists’ work. However, physical locations for Teen TreeHuggers galleries, exhibitions, and shows are one of the goals in the long-term plan. This organization will also serve as an educational resource for teens through guidebooks tailored to each art form on how to best maximize the impact of their work. A guidebook on how to gain financial support will also be available so teens have greater chances of success in solving their communities’ issues and hosting conservation events. The organization’s website will also have a calendar available to members containing TreeHugger-led conservation events as well as a public calendar with conservation events held by other organizations. Another long-term goal is to create chatrooms on the website where teens can host and attend brainstorming sessions to connect and collaborate with their fellow TreeHuggers. There will be a small membership fee to become a TreeHugger in order to have a sense of commitment from the teen as well as to cover costs. However, the grant fund will also include the opportunity for teens to apply for free membership. The Teen TreeHuggers organization will be sustained through grants as well as business sponsorships.

We will occupy a booth at the local Earth Day Festival. We will create a PLINKO game to draw young children and other guests to our booth. Once the guests play our game, they will also get an activity book that we have created. The activity book will have fun and educational activities about saving the environment, recycling, and about Earth Day. We will also purchase globe keychains and globe punch ball balloons to give away as prizes.

We will go out and mow yards for the elderly and disabled within our community. We will visit the elderly that have yards outgrown and we will clean their yards for them. This funding will help us purchase one of the lawn mowers that we need.

Out project will allow people who would normally not be able to see in great detail different stars or constellations have that opportunity. We will do this by having a few ipass with an app that shows the different constellations and where they are located in the sky. We will also have the Lacrosse Area Astrology group come and talk about the telescopes and teach people the basics of how to operate a telescope.

Ken DeFrank, principal of the Success Academy in Grand Island, NE, wrote a grant to get the funding for a school pollinator garden at Dodge School. Dodge Elementary School students are using state fair winnings from a combination of our (outdoor) Little Free Library and "Adopt a Cat" community service boards to help fund the project. This will be a shared effort between the Dodge chapter of the GIPS Roots&Shoots and the elementary Skills Academy/ high school Success Academy.

We are the Pier Park Urban Park Rangers! Mrs. Sorensen's 4th grade students at Dodge Elementary School researched and created a JR Park Ranger booklet for our park in the hopes that by doing this project it will encourage people to go outside, keep parks clean, and help people get along!
