Through CELF programming educators and students learn how social justice, and environmental and economic health can be addressed in any subject area and across every grade level. Patti joined the founding CELF Board of Directors in 2003 after almost 20 years experience in financial and organization management. Her passion for connecting students to the evolving need for sustainable thinking in government, business, and industry led to her creation of CELF student programs which have reached over 10,000 students, including the Students for a Sustainable Future EXPO, Learning with Leaders Series, and Student Ambassador Program.
