MYN creates climate resilience and climate mitigation to strengthen holistic relationships and build out regenerative economies. We believe it is imperative youth are trained in both climate adaptation and mitigation as part of their math and science education in order to lead the way toward comprehensive solutions to climate change.
MYN is a pioneering Bay Area youth-centered organization founded in 2017, dedicated to bridging the gap between increasing climate-related disasters and the abilities of young people to proactively respond, by drawing from ancestral traditions and practices as well as cutting-edge Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math (STEAM) programming.
MYN programs are Next Generation Science Standards aligned and created to be both site specific as well as easily adaptable across a range of geographic locations. Our curriculum meets the needs of youth and communities in real-time. It is both site- and community-specific while recognizing inherent truths across multiple ancestral communities.
MYN is only possible with the support of our entire community - from staff and volunteers to donors and community supporters.
We have a collective imperative to support and empower youth to face our uncertain future with hope, resilience, and bravery. We need your financial, emotional, and intellectual support to make this possible.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Moya, Age 11
We are the future and we need to fix climate change and the pollution of the earth.
Mosiah, Age 10
It's important to empower kids to talk about climate change because bigger kids are role models for younger kids and younger kids will listen to older kids.
Joshua, Age 14
We, as youth, have to fix what generations before us have ruined and to do what we must do, we need to be educated.
