Expanding Classrooms.

Strengthening Communities.

The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative strives to build vibrant, sustainable communities committed to empowering their young people as environmental leaders and social entrepreneurs. GLSI 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 beyond the walls of any one school building or political jurisdiction out into the exquisite natural and cultural landscape of Northeast Michigan.
