Mission and ValuesOregon Green School is dedicated to energizing and engaging students through student-driven activities that advance their understanding and ownership of sustainability.
What We Do
Oregon Green Schools (OGS) is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1997, that provides free sustainability assistance and support to schools across the state. We support schools in establishing and maintaining thriving resource conservation programs that shape the next generation of environmental leaders.
Our outreach is rooted in a comprehensive certification framework, student events and a network of regional coordinators that provide coaching and technical assistance. OGS connects green team leaders to curriculum and activities, funding sources and local experts that can help guide schools on their sustainability journey. We’re operated by a volunteer board of directors with funding support from sponsors and friends.
