Founded in 1992 as an environment-based mentoring program, EnvironMentors envisions young adult leaders from all cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds becoming active stewards of their communities and the environment. Since 1992 the program has paired over 2,000 high school students with mentors.


EnvironMentors was initiated in 1992 in Washington, DC as an educational, community‐based initiative that served under‐resourced high schools. Since then it has grown to become a national program with 12 chapters across the country. Read the full story.



To carry out its mission, EnvironMentors works with its staff at the national office as well as at the local level, and is supported by an advisory board. Meet our staff and advisory board.
