About the Organization...

Be The Change Earth Alliance (BTCEA) is a bold, agile and creative charitable organization founded in 2005 with a mission to support global sustainability through education that empowers personal and collective change. We have engaging programs for adults in community and workplace as well as for students in middle and secondary schools. Our flagship program, Student Leadership for Change (SLC), consists of learning resources that have been developed collaboratively with teachers and used in hundreds of classrooms across BC. We augment SLC by providing assemblies and education-in-action workshops for students and Professional Development workshops for teachers. The SLC holistic approach covers a full spectrum of ways participants can ‘be the change’ to address global issues, from individual, school and community actions to civic engagement.
