Urban-Eco’s local activities include establishing after-school science clubs in inner cities across the United States. The established Urban-Eco science clubs focus on educating inner city youth about recycling, repurposing materials and examining how they can play a more symbiotic role in their environment, locally and globally.
The club will begin the start of each calendar school year, typically August or September, and end at the conclusion of the school year, typically June. The club will undertake such activities that include but are not limited to fundraising, repurposing plastic bags into reusable grocery bags, local species count, community clean-ups, etc.
If you are intersted in sponsoring or starting an Urban-Eco Club at your school please send us an email at email@example.com

To change how students experience learning and break out of the four-walls of traditional education. All fundraising efforts of Urban-Eco, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is sending urban students on a journey traveling from Rwanda to Kenya during the summer of 2017. Once in Africa the students will volunteer at local schools and undergo a journey to learn about the Maasai culture, ecology of Kenya, Mountain Gorilla Conservation and the history of Rwanda's people. Their journey will consist of studying conservation efforts that promote economic sustainability for the Maasai culture and communities surrounding the Maasai Mara. This experience will develop the students and teachers as scientists and global citizens.
