The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (NEMIGLSI) strives to build vibrant, sustainable communities committed to empowering young people as environmental leaders and social entrepreneurs. The NEMIGLSI network achieves this vision by: facilitating school-community partnerships; funding innovative, collaborative student-driven projects; providing targeted training opportunities for students and teachers; and coordinating communities of learning. Collectively, these efforts extend the classroom outside school walls and into the exquisite natural and cultural landscape of Northeast Michigan.

In partnership with University of Notre Dame student, Zoe Rae Rote, Michigan State University Extension, and Michigan Sea Grant, the NEMIGLSI network recently published a report on the student perspective of place-based education in Alpena County. These students found value in connecting with their communities, engaging in hands-on learning, exploring future careers paths, and simply having fun!
Northeast Michigan GLSI network programs and materials are open to all without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, religion, age, height, weight, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, or veteran status.
