We utilize a proprietary public-private partnership platform called the Green Schoolhouse Series to align corporate America with achieving success across their triple bottom line of people, planet and profits.   We educate corporate America, nonprofit organizations and government entities that their community outreach efforts can positively impact underserved communities and simultaneously provide a dramatic return on investment for their contributions.
