WHERE WE WORK

Nurturing Place-Based Learning Across Michigan

The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative works through a network of seven regional hubs, each of which is led by experienced, qualified staff. Each hub is a vital resource for local schools and teachers—providing leadership and resources for effective place-based teaching and learning, offering small grants for students’ place-based education projects, and connecting teachers with partners in the community who can help support this important work.
