What We Do

Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from support for taking simple measurements to teacher professional development and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.


YLACES makes grants to help those implementing youth environmental citizen science and research projects.

YLACES supports convening regional symposia each year where youth present their research projects.

The Youth Environmental Science (YES) Medal is awarded annually.

YLACES is an advocate for the inclusion of student research in all science education. To learn science,

do science
