Launched in 2001, Earth Tomorrow is the National Wildlife Federation's longest-standing environmental justice education program. An environmental education and leadership development program for high school students, Earth Tomorrow motivates youth—particularly youth of color—to develop lifelong habits of environmental stewardship.
Through Earth Tomorrow, students learn about environmental stressors that predominantly affect Black and Brown communities, such as food deserts, illegal waste dumping, lead exposure, and the climate crisis.
The program cultivates this new generation of lifetime stewards through a year-long cycle of leadership training, civic engagement, career development, outdoor recreation, community service, and project-based environmental education. Through these activities, youth can implement bold action to improve the health and welfare of their communities.
Earth Tomorrow Atlanta is currently engaging youth in voter education and get-out-the-vote initiatives to increase youth participation in Georgia.
