Urban Youth Action
MCSI partnered with Urban Youth Action (UYA) to present a series of green lectures to provide 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students a general understanding of sustainability principles. The lectures, on sustainability, green buildings, energy and water, worked to engage students through presentations and activities. UYA was founded in 1966 and continues to serve young people today in preparing them for the opportunities available in education, employment, entrepreneurship and public service. UYA remains committed to providing youth with the opportunity to become "work ready, life prepared and community minded". The MCSI and UYA partnership was an ideal way to teach young people about the concepts of sustainability and the relationship to their community and everyday life.
