2023 Green Foothills Leadership Program


Congratulations to the 2023 Cohort of the Green Foothills Leadership Program. The Leadership Program trains new environmental leaders who ground their advocacy in racial equity and collaboration.

This year, program participants from San Mateo County are working on two projects:

  1. Caring for the Urban Environment: San Francisquito Creek
    This campaign will organize neighbors in East Palo Alto to clean up San Francisquito Creek and to learn about environmental issues affecting their community.
  1. Connecting the Community to Environmental Justice
    Leaders are developing an environmental justice curriculum focused on culturally-relevant practices and community mental health for BIPOC families.

If you’d like to develop leadership and advocacy skills, applications for the 2024 program open this August through Green Foothills.
