We started as a group of over 40 passionate students working to ensure our world becomes more environmentally friendly. The Youth Climate Action Coalition evolved from the Environmental Club at

Del Oro High School in Northern California; since our official establishing date, our organizations have spread our message to over 1,000,000 students through social media and have implemented our sustainable practices in hundreds of schools.
