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.
The lesson plans below offer enrichment and group activities as well as strategies for curriculum integration.

"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."
