Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program

Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC) is pleased to announce that its Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program has been renewed for a fourth year with the generous support of the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU.)

The Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program provides grants, one-on-one support, and expert resources to K-12 schools in Delaware that are committed to becoming healthier, more sustainable, and more energy efficient. By participating in this program, schools will work towards achieving certification and national recognition through Eco-Schools USA and the U.S. Department of Education’s Green Ribbon Schools award.
