The Alliance for the Great Lakes is dedicated to fostering an ethic of learning, appreciation and care for the Great Lakes. We offer two educational programs: Great Lakes in My World, an educator resource for kindergarten through 12th-grade that addresses Next Generation Science, Common Core and Great Lakes state learning standards, and Adopt-a-Beach™, a service learning and citizen science program tailored to all ages.
Teachers use Great Lakes in My World to enhance students' critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee.
