Eco Ambassador Program

Environmental Awareness for Glendale's Youth

The Eco Ambassador Program is designed to teach middle school students the leadership skills needed to implement an environmental awareness program at their school and in their home. This program consists of three major components:

  1. Litter Prevention
  2. Recycling
  3. Sustainable Living

Throughout the school year Ambassadors participate in various educational activities including, the Middle School Recycling Challenge, campus clean ups, Adopt-A-Block, presentations from guest speakers about environmental issues, field trips, and more.

Eco Ambassadors are having a direct impact on the quality of life in Glendale by eliminating blight caused by litter and


 trash. The ambassadors are featured in many newspaper articles; a recent article is featured here. Furthermore, the recycling and storm water pollution components of the program are developing a strong sense of environmental stewardship in the participating youth. Through changed behavior and hands on training, Glendale youth will be able to make a significant impact in their community. .

Eco Ambassadors is formerly known as the Junior Ambassadors.
