We believe that the Career Catalyst is a powerful resource for students to use on their own, however, having an adult to guide and facilitate the experience with reflective and collaborative activities can empower learners to go further with their career exploration process. Be sure to check out the Changemaker Wall to see how students are articulating their desire to bring change to the world through school and work.
We Need Educator Testimonials
We are collecting testimonials from educators who can share experiences about the impact of the Career Catalyst on students. How have you used the Career Catalyst? How did it benefit students? (Individual student stories are welcome)
Please email your testimonial to Green360support@wested.org prior to November 17, 2018.
We will award five Amazon gift cards ($30 each) to the authors of the five testimonials that we select to highlight for our funder.

"By incorporating Green 360 in our Green Cadre Work Readiness course we give our students the tools and processes to better understand the environmental challenges society faces, build a network of experts, mentors, and collaborators, and investigate how they might discover and pursue a career that can make a difference in a way that is meaningful and rewarding to them."
"I work with educators all over the country and I have never heard of a program as innovative and unique as Green 360."
