Want to do more?

Student Energy Ambassadors with Take Charge! are looking to create change in the way Colorado residents think about and use energy, and get students thinking about ?green? sector careers. Students receive training and then reach out to adults and other students through presentations, social events and door-to-door canvassing. Groundwork Colorado is looking for teachers, local industry, student groups, adult volunteers and others interested in supporting these efforts. Questions? Contact Stephanie Fry, Project Manager, at 303-455-5600 or at stephanie@groundworkdenver.org.
