Educational Presentations

Green Youngstown is here to enhance your curriculum FREE of charge.

Younger students will enjoy learning through environmental stories that include some of their favorite characters, such as The Lorax and Clifford the Big Red Dog. The lesson will be further reinforced by an environmental craft or activity.

Older students and mixed groups can enjoy a variety of environmental activities.

All of our presentations and activities tie into State of Ohio Common Core Standards and Themes.

Current Presentation and Activity Offerings

You may view our offerings by Common Core Standard, Grade Level, or view a complete, printable list.

NOTE: The Grade Levels listed below are general guidelines. Most of the presentations can be adapted for younger and/or older students, upon request.

Recycling Calendar Contest

Every Fall, Green Youngstown holds a Recycling Art Calendar Contest for schools within the City limits. A new theme is chosen every year and submissions are selected per grade grouping. The winners receive an invitation, along with their family, Art Teacher, and Principal, to attend a pizza party in their honor. City and County officials are invited to help encourage the young artists.

Service Projects

We can help you plan service projects such as litter cleanups, beautifications and recycling drives. The success of Green Youngstown depends largely on the efforts of our volunteers. Some of our biggest events throughout the year include our Roadway Cleanup, Citywide Cleanups in the Spring and Fall, America Recycles Day (November 15), and Earth Day (April 22).

Schedule an Activity

To schedule a presentation or discuss a special project, please call our office at 330.744.7526 (8 AM - 4 PM).

Not only can we lend tools to support cleanups, we educate youth and the community at large on how we can prevent litter. When we know better, we can DO better! Recycling can reduce the amount of trash entering landfills, which is better for the environment and our economy.
