Educate

The goal of the Eastern Kentucky PRIDE Environmental Education Program is to foster environmental stewardship through education and awareness in our schools and communities, instilling PRIDE in our next generation.

Environmental Education Grants

The PRIDE Environmental Education Grant program supports projects that help young people understand the importance of a clean environment, personal responsibility and community pride. Projects emphasize hands-on activities, and students are encouraged to share their lessons and serve their communities. The contract value varies based upon available funding. The one-year grants are available through an application process to schools, nonprofit organizations and other educators in designated counties served by PRIDE.

PRIDE Clubs

PRIDE Clubs learn about the environment in fun ways, mentor younger students and perform community service. Resources, including funding, are available to PRIDE Clubs that register with the PRIDE office for the school year.

PRIDE Scout Program

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in southern and eastern Kentucky can earn PRIDE Environmental Action patches for their efforts to improve the environment. PRIDE partners with the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. and Boy Scouts of America to promote environmental education through hands-on learning experiences. To earn patches, scouts perform at least four hours of community service related to conservation.

PRIDE Environmental Education Project of the Month

The PRIDE Environmental Education Project of the Month program rewards creative, effective ways of promoting environment awareness and stewardship. PRIDE publicizes the award-winning projects to share best practices among the region’s educators. The award program is open to any environmental education project in the 38 counties served by PRIDE.

Green Frog Gazette

The Green Frog Gazette is a virtual newsletter for environmental educators. It spotlights model projects, features photos and student artwork submitted by educators, announces PRIDE environmental education news, and compiles useful resources, such as web sites.
