About Us

At schools across Oregon, students, teachers and staff are making a difference in their communities with programs to recycle, reduce waste, save energy and conserve water.

Oregon Green Schools is helping with:

  • Hands-on assistance
  • Curriculum and funding resources
  • Recognition and events

Oregon Green Schools is a nonprofit organization that was formed in 1997. We have over 25 regional coordinators throughout the state and nearly 300 participating schools.

Our regional coordinators help schools conduct waste audits, provide guidance and training for new programs and recommend curriculum resources and grant opportunities.

We’re operated by a volunteer board of directors with funding support from sponsors and friends.

Our Mission

Oregon Green School is dedicated to energizing and engaging students through student-driven activities that advance their understanding and ownership of sustainability.
