SEEDS EcoSchool brings place-based learning opportunities to students across Northern Michigan. Teaching staff prioritize hands-on and outdoor activities that develop leadership, life skills, and resilience.
Since 2009, we have been very fortunate to host 21st Century Community Learning Centers thanks to support from the Michigan Department of Education. This grant program allows us to provide free out-of-school-time academic and cultural enrichment four days a week all year to selected partner schools. Over the years, thousands of K-12 students have been greeted by name by our staff and shepherded into high quality, engaging, safe spaces to explore and learn. Every day, these students get dinner, healthy role models and mentors, and really fun hands-on activities.
