Annual Climate Summits
BLS YouthCAN hosts a yearly Climate & Sustainability Youth Summit in which students across the state of Massachusetts attend! We've had keynote speakers such as Mayor Michelle Wu, Dr. Ellis Jones, and Nadia Nazar. For further information see our SUMMIT page!
Cleaning our Rooftop Garden
YouthCAN members weed and clean up our rooftop garden throughout the year!
BLS Trash Dash!
Our annual Trash Dash takes place in October! This is an event in which students compete in teams to collect as much trash and recyclables as possible from the school campus and general Longwood area. By cleaning the school grounds and its surrounding area, we hope to foster a sense of responsibility and stewardship within our student body, as well as reducing our direct impacts on the environment.
Annual Sixie Assembly
YouthCAN hosts an annual Sixie Climate Assembly (7th Grade) for the newest members of our school in September! The purpose of this event is to increase awareness within the school community about climate change and its impacts within the city of Boston and beyond.
