Lowcountry students work with Earth Force to do projects that better their communities, environment
About 300 Lowcountry youth from nine schools gathered Tuesday to celebrate their efforts to better their community and the environment.
Students came together with the help of Earth Force, a national program that partners with local schools to enable students to affect environmental change. The nonprofit group guides teachers and after-school leaders who work with students to create and implement projects.
“We get to talk about how we can save the Earth, and we came up with ideas on how we can help,” said Savannah Woods, a sixth-grader at James Island Middle.
Participating schools included: James Island Elementary, Harborview Elementary, Stiles Point Elementary, Murray LaSaine Elementary, James Island Middle, James Simons Elementary, Chicora School of Communications, Memminger School of Global Studies and North Charleston Elementary.
