Learning for the Greater Good

Every day, the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative sparks new ways for teachers and students to learn from the world around them. We inspire connections between classrooms and the local environment to build resilient communities. We provide unprecedented resources to transform K–12 education in the Great Lakes region through a powerful, one-of-a-kind statewide network of coordinated hubs.

We connect real experience in the environment with educational approaches that energize and empower teachers and students in the service of learning and supporting the community. This bold approach, known as place-based education, is the foundation of our powerful network of educators, students, and regional partners who are transforming Michigan classrooms and communities.

Schools across the region are increasing student engagement, improving academic achievement, and contributing to environmental quality in the Great Lakes’ ecosystems.

“…One of the most comprehensive place-based education programs in the country.”

– David Sobel, Center for Place-based Education, Antioch New England Institute

The Power of the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative Network

The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative has worked with 1,562 teachers in 263 schools across Michigan, creating an unparalleled network of resources and support.

More than 100,000 students have been empowered to help defend and nurture their local environment through our work.

We’ve enlisted about 1,100 individuals or representatives of local, state, or national groups to serve as partners in our stewardship projects.

Every day, we help connect classrooms with communities.

Together, we can expand our work to more schools and communities who desperately need it.
Will you join us today to change the face of education in Michigan and beyond?
