Description:  “Greening Forward is a youth-driven, youth-led, and youth-imagined environmental organization. Founded in 2008 by the then 12-year-old Charles Orgbon III, Greening Forward has grown into one of the largest youth-led nonprofit organizations in the country. Through our grants, mentorships, conferences, and other programs, Greening Forward provides the support for young people to create real change for issues they are passionate about. We take the youthful energy and mindset that young people have and combine them with our tools and structure, then watch as they actually change the world. Working with thousands annually across the country, Greening Forward is paving the way for young people to learn and utilize leadership in shaping the world they want to see.”
