We’ve heard directly from students, teachers, parents and community leaders that youth in our leadership network are optimistic, courageous and empowered when it comes to creating lasting solutions to climate change in their communities.
Alicia Wong is an ACE Action Fellow who is writing a monthly blog series on her experiences with her fellowship. In September, she wrote about how her club won recycling bins for her school through the Coca-Cola--Keep America Beautiful Bin Grant program.

Finally, my sophomore year of high school, I found this amazing organization that put the power of the individual into a reality. An organization through which individuals join together in strength and unity to fight the biggest threat to our future: climate change. That organization was ACE.
Hello everyone! My name is Alicia Wong. I am the president of the environmental club at my school, Edward C. Reed HS in Sparks, Nevada. I am also a Climate Action Fellow at ACE.
