Eco Leaders logoWelcome to the 2017-2018 Eco Leaders website, you will find everything you need for the upcoming academic year on this site. Please explore the Curriculum Tab above to find the weekly articles, videos and infographs you will be responsible for reading before the date of that weekly meeting. These articles will help you better understand the weekly topics we will be discussing and prepare you for class. The weekly report tab is where you tell us what you have been up to during your 5 hours of engagement work. You will notice the weekly reports have check boxes with specific tasks for each week. Your weekly reports are due each week by 4pm on Thursday. Please make sure you are reading all your articles and completing all your weekly reports.
