Our programs prompt the sharing of vision, ideas and solutions among students, faculty and staff across thousands of campuses. Our motivation is to inspire a generation of collaborative leaders, scaling positive impact and powerful change.
Turning Green mobilizes youth to become active around issues that directly impact personal and environmental health. With resources, powerful online and offline programs, lifestyle and campus initiatives, as well as strong leadership and mentorship opportunities, we prompt transition from conventional to conscious living in collaboration with academic institutions, businesses, organizations, policy makers and global leaders.

The Conscious Kitchen (TCK) is dedicated to a systemic transformation of school dining, the health and improved life outcomes of our children, local food systems that support ecological agriculture and fair wages, and to a thriving future for our planet. As the first organic/non-GMO school food program in the country, TCK partners with schools to shift the paradigm around food service, based on five foundational terms: fresh, local, organic, seasonal, non-GMO (FLOSN). These terms guide this groundbreaking program and define an unwavering commitment to the long term health of children, prioritizing ethically sourced and organically grown food. The Conscious Kitchen successfully breaks the cycle of unhealthy, pre-packaged, processed, heat and serve foods, transitioning to chef prepared meals made with scratch-cooked ingredients, purchased within USDA budgets and exceeding nutritional guidelines.
