There are five components of the program.
- Assess: Complete and submit an Eco-Audit for your school

Throughout the duration of the program, students will receive:
- Opportunity to participate in workshops, tours, and community events
- Free tickets to local Halton Green Screen events as available and upon request
- About 30-40 community service hours (depending on your projects)
- Support and references from HEN Directors, including Halton Green Screens and Greening Sacred Spaces, as well as introductions to local environmental groups that can assist with projects
- A Certificate of Environmental Excellence (upon completion of all components)
At the end of the 2018/2019 school year, all Ambassadors will be invited to share their accomplishments and to pitch their proposals to prominent members in the community.
Ambassadors will be responsible for completing worksheets, as well as tracking their own time spent on each component.
Your HEN Coordinator is Heather Govender. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most communication will be via email or skype/phone conversations. Upcoming workshops and events will be promoted through the HEN Volunteer Google Group that you will be added to upon acceptance into this program.
