On May 6th 2012 at Navy Pier, The Academy for Global Citizenship won the $5,000 Ford Community Green Grant, which encourages local non-profit organizations and community leaders to submit their sustainable, forward-thinking ideas to improve the environment or quality of life in their community.
ACG competed with four other Green Grant finalists, and presented our innovative and holistic approach to education, which aims to foster systemic change and inspire the way society educates our future generations. We also explained the construction of a Net-Positive Energy Campus. The grant will support the wonderful Global Marketplace Summer Camp.
We would like to thank Jenni Schneiderman, our After-School and Community Outreach Coordinator, and everyone who was involved with the event! Special thanks to all who voted for AGC!
