The GREEN Program enhances the academic life experience of passionate students and empowers them to become socially responsible, innovative, and environmentally conscious leaders of tomorrow. Our programs bridge the gap between textbook learning and real-time industry experience by taking students behind the scenes of the world’s leading clean energy and sustainability initiatives.The GREEN Program designs short-term immersion programs in the most exciting places on earth, which are epicenters of innovative technologies as well as bucket-list travel destinations.
Classes, exams, internships, social life. Students’ schedules are jam-packed, not leaving much time or resources to study abroad for a whole semester or a year.
So The GREEN Program was built to enable even the busiest students to gain unrivaled global perspectives while bridging the gap between “theoretical textbook learning” and real-time industry experience.
The GREEN Team serves as the fundamental catalyst for thousands of students breaking into and transforming the clean energy and sustainability industries. We live our vision, and have embedded our entrepreneurial spirit and fresh perspectives into every facet of our organization.
We believe that students should never have to choose between accepting an internship or attending a study abroad experience during their school breaks; they should be able to do both..
So we created The GREEN Program, where the words of a traditional textbook jump off the page and into the minds and hearts of our students through hands-on education at functioning renewable energy facilities and sustainable site visits. Where studying abroad means intense immersive education, adventure leadership excursions, cultural experiences, and service learning projects. And where students become inspired in their field of study and return home emerging as leaders who put their ideas into immediate action at their home College, University, community, state or country. The GREEN Program is dedicated to accelerating meaningful careers for today’s students to transition into tomorrow’s socially responsible, innovative, green conscious, leaders of the world.
