Creating community stewardship through student citizenship

Community stewardship transforms education and our future. The Southeast Michigan Stewardship Coalition (SEMIS Coalition) nurtures partnerships between schools and innovative thinkers in the community. We build communities that support visionary practices in our schools and beyond— so that students can grow into citizen-stewards of healthy ecological-social systems.

“SEMIS Coalition is modeling strategies aimed at empowering youth to become ‘solutionaries’ capable of improving the health of human and natural environments.”
