Student Sustainability Leadership Academy
ATTENTION: The deadline to apply to this program is now February 20th!
BYSC is partnering with Transylvania University, Bluegrass Greensource and LFUCG Environmental Services to connect today’s impassioned student leaders for sustainability with city, higher education and community leaders to forge alliances and improve sustainability in Lexington schools, homes, businesses and offices. Limited to 30 participants, students accepted to SSLA will engage elected city officials, college professors and local green businesses to learn first-hand the critical role youth can play in greening up our community and their future college campuses. Currently, the program includes a case study of Lexington's Consent Degree, storm-drain stenciling, a visit to Food Chain's aquaponics farm and kitchen, a tour of Lexington's McConnell Springs, and much more. Lunch is included, and Excused Absence forms will be provided to submit to your school principal. SSLA takes place 8:30-12:30 March 8th (Environmental Policy & Law), March 29th (Green Business), and April 19th (Nature Appreciation). Please apply using THIS FORM. The deadline to apply is midnight Wednesday February 20th!
The SSLA event will be held at Transylvania University
