Local Schools Program

This program seeks to enhance student centered learning using environmental education as an entry point. We create opportunities for Bahamian children to experience environmental stewardship and gain exposure to options for how to live well in a place.



We apply three objectives together for program effectiveness:

Objective 1: Develop environmental education resources that are locally relevant. These resources align with the Bahamian National Curriculum for primary and secondary schools.

Objective 2: Provide ongoing professional development in environmental education methodology to increase level of instruction and knowledge for teachers of Eleuthera.

Objective 3: Facilitate opportunities for students to develop, test and apply new ideas and new knowledge while gaining an understanding of the ecosystems of Eleuthera.
