The Climate Initiative

2023-2024 Goals

TCI’s goal is to engage one million youth in solutions-oriented, equitable climate action by 2025, thus our 2023-2024 goals are:

  • Launch at least three new Learning Labs (our flagship free climate change educational modules) on the topics of: Climate Justice and Equity; Preparing Youth for the Green Economy; and Civics Climate Action Lab
  • Expand the number of students (93,000) currently being taught with Learning Labs; currently in all 50 states and 13 countries!
  • Revamp our Monitoring & Evaluation program to ensure both fiscal responsibility with our donor dollars as well as more effectively measure our impact with key stakeholders
  • Grow and activate the TCI Ambassador Program (currently over 1,000 strong)
  • Represent TCI at the UN Global Climate Change Conference (COP28)
  • Pilot a new Community College program to reach youth that are historically underrepresented in the climate conversation
  • Expand our reach via our partnerships with FEMA and the American Red Cross

Fundraising events/Opportunities

TCI offers a variety of fundraising events and engagement opportunities for donors. This includes opportunities to attend portions of key programming to see TCI’s work in action, including donor-specific versions of our impactful community conversation programming. We also accept sponsorships and host traditional donor events like dinners, happy hour gatherings and more. We are interested in pursuing new event opportunities such as book talks and interactive engagement on the impacts of climate change, and are eager for collaboration with partners that are interested in sponsoring, supporting physical space for events and encouraging staff of potential partners to join us! Please reach out to to discuss specific ideas.
