Purpose of the O’YES Program
The Overbrook Youth Environmental Stewardship (O’YES) Program is an environmental education campaign designed to teach 9th to 11th grade Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) focused and Career Technical Education (CTE) students best management practices of environment protection; public health; non-source pollution; exposures to household hazardous waste; energy conservation and domestic toxins.
The O’YES program is funded by the PA Department of Environmental Protection and is designed to promote environmental justice and public awareness of the US Clean Water Act, US Toxic Substances Control Act, and the US Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodent Act. Youth stewards, through workshops and media forums, will learn skills that will promote awareness of, and support for the build and natural environments of Philadelphia.
