At Plastic Tides, we believe that plastic is a starting point to open discussion around all aspects of sustainability, and that sharing everyday solutions to the issue will inspire the next generation. By starting with youth, a circle of education is born, where the students eventually become the teachers, inspiring generations to come. Through our Global Youth Mentorship (GYM) Program, Youth Leaders and their assigned Mentor will pursue an individual project which focuses on creating a lasting positive impact in their school or community. Each project will have exponential effects, with impacts expanding globally. GYM empowers youth to be leaders of change; with the right tools and support, individual Youth Leaders can have an enduring and widespread impact.
