Leadership Center

The Captain Planet Foundation Leadership Center bridges the Foundation’s external programs, such as grants to support environmental education projects across the world, and its internal programs, including the Learning Gardens, Youth Planeteer Clubs and other demonstration projects. Its mission is to support environmental literacy and stewardship by promoting best practices in the field. Inspired by ideas gleaned from twenty years of Foundation-funded projects; and based on research into childhood education and activities; as well as evaluation of promising programs, the Leadership Center shares the most effective curricula, techniques, approaches and strategies for empowering the next generation of Earth’s caretakers.
