Postponed (see below): April 11, 2020 Beaverton Youth Climate Training — Registration — Students
We're very sorry but we are postponing our training until the COVID 19 danger is lessened, enabling us to go back to having trainings. We will pick new day as soon as we are able.
In the meantime, do encourage your friends to follow us on Instagram and Facebook, and for anyone who has registered or does register for this training, we will protect your registration information and let you know for when the training is rescheduled, so you will just let us know if you can make the new day, no need to re-register.
Keep an eye on this page in case we put together a project for youth and families to work with each other youth as a team remotely, to help elected officials and others see the unfortunate connection between the climate crisis and the spread to and among humans of COVID 19 so they can take more effective action.
Take care of each other and keep your spirits up. Thanks for all you are already doing.
*** Please complete this form and submit as soon as possible, ideally before Monday, April 6, 2020. Late registrations are okay, but registering by that date helps our ability to plan food and other things. We must have parent permission back prior to participation in the training.
Very Important: Please read this page for details, along with the follow-up email you will be receiving shortly before the training. ☘️To participate, students must stay for the full training.☘️
All students in grades 4-12 (and the homeschool equivalents) are welcome to all youth climate trainings! Slightly younger students and college students who are interested in doing the training, please contact us at vergun@
to discuss the possibility of participating.
Cool Islam and Bilal Mosque are again our hosts for this training for families of all backgrounds. The Tikkun Olam Committee of Congregation P'nai Or Jewish Renewal is co-sponsoring this training.
YAE trainings are always FREE to students in 4th - 12th grades and include a morning snack and lunch. This one will include small graduation gifts as well.
At a Climate Training, students learn about Climate Change from other students through engaging in a slide presentation and discussions, working on their ability to speak with knowledge and authority about Climate Change, and practicing sharing that presentation with other students and adults. We will also be using a simple game to learn about Climate Justice and engaging in a short arts-based activity, another way to "speak out". The Climate Training experience centers on developing students' knowledge and ability to present this information to others—encouraging themselves and others to act on Climate Change. A workshop for parents will occur from 9:00 until 11:00; attending will provide parents with additional knowledge and the chance to talk with other parents in a supportive, structured way so they can even better support their youth.

Special needs/Behavioral issues
We make every effort to engage the students fully throughout the Climate Training day. However, if your child has special needs (such as ADHD) that would interfere with their and other students’ participation, we require that one parent volunteer for the Academy so that you can be responsible for supervising and supporting your child’s participation to ensure the best experience possible for them and for other students. Also, we reserve the right to call parents to pick up their child if their child’s participation with other students is not working.
Please select whichever categories best fit.
