DW Green Institute Inc., Green School

Youth and Business Initiatives

DW Green Institute Inc., Green School offers energy and environment consultancy services on the east coast and internationally.

Youth Initiative Energy and Environment Program

There is a sense of urgency for change regarding environmental issues in the United States and abroad. However, for change to occur, tomorrow’s scientists and engineers (today’s youth) need to be educated in areas such as science and engineering.

Unfortunately, American youth are not adequately educated in areas that are critical to environmental science. The DW Communications & Media’s Youth Initiative Energy & Environment Program (DW) was founded to remedy this situation.

Specifically, the mission of the DW Green Institute Inc. is to increase awareness and understanding of energy and the environment in our nation’s youth through the use of innovative education and communication strategies. We are currently working with schools and communities to expose young people to careers in one of these three fields: engineering, science, and media.

The program’s cornerstone is a specially tailored curriculum, field presentations, and hands-on experience. There are also other activities, workshops, field trips, and job shadowing opportunities, which all allow our students to receive personal exposure to their field of interest.

Our program brings young people to the world of sound environmental practices, alternative energy resources, and various areas within the fields of engineering, science, and the arena of media production.

Our aim at DW Green Institute Inc. is to expose each student to the sciences, to enhance their environmental awareness, to teach them to become proactive regarding environmental issues, and to enlighten them on career alternatives and higher education options. Our core value mirrors those of all education – to better prepare students for their futures in the workplace.

In DW Green Institute Inc.’s focus area of the environment, we feel that students need to learn about:

            1.The heavy environmental challenges that currently face our planet which are rapidly increasing;

            2.The impact of current technology on those challenges; and

            3.The need for improvement of current technology using research and development to meet those challenges.

Sparking an Interest in Science Education

Our approaches increase student participation by drawing the student into the actual world of environmental problems and possible solutions. By talking to environmental experts and witnessing firsthand what the issues are, students become more motivated and excited at the prospect of making a difference. This also allows for increased self-esteem, enhanced decision-making skills, and self-development.

DW Green Institute Inc. aims to serve as a role model and reinforcement for positive living outcomes. However, we are aware that not all students learn at the same pace or level, so our program enhances the current school curriculum by taking students out of the classroom. We give them field experience, which may not be available in a traditional classroom setting.

However, limited funding creates challenges for supplemental programs such as ours. Funding for teacher development and support, materials, and transportation is needed. Thus, support from foundations, companies, parents, community stakeholders, and others is critical to the success of our program and, ultimately, the success of our students, and hopefully, the future success of our global environment.

Business Initiative Energy and Environment Program

The focus on energy and the environment is at the forefront for consumers, business owners, and industry leaders. In 2009, the Prince George's Chamber of Commerce teamed with DW Communications & Media and the Youth Initiative Energy & Environment Program (YIEEP) to begin the process of incorporating Green Practices.

Doreen Williams, President of DW Communications & Media and the Green School partnered with the Chamber team to serve as the Chamber's Environmental Education Executive Director.

Our mission is to educate members and citizens on the steps that can be taken to incorporate Green Practices in their business and offices.
