Project: Going Green Task Force
Ms. Collins created a student-led Going Green Task Force (GGTF) at Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy. Comprised of students from the three middle school grades, the GGTF encourages the practice of recycling and is responsible for the dissemination of educational facts about environmentally friendly initiatives. In addition, GGTF students maintain vegetable and flower gardens, dialogue about current events such as air pollution and publish bimonthly Podcasts linked to going green.
