"I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW GREAT I THINK [GREEN BEETZ] IS. IT FILLS A HUGE GAP IN OUR CURRENT CURRICULUM. WE CURRENTLY HAVE NO OTHER PROGRAMS AT THE SCHOOL THAT FOSTER AN UNDERSTANDING OF OUR FOOD SYSTEMS."
- JEANNE SALCHLI, GREEN BEETZ TEACHER AT PS 376K

Teaching the Green Beetz Curriculum
The Green Beetz curriculum is taught across NYC as an integrated part of classroom lesson time, or delivered as an after-school or standalone curriculum. In partnership with the YMCA, Green Beetz is also offered as an after-school program and summer camp.
Public and charter schools participating in Green Beetz are supplied with all program components including the curriculum, activities, and supplies. Teachers are supported by the Green Beetz school coordinator, and participate in intensive professional development trainings throughout the year.
