This is the second post in a multi-part series on youth climate heroes from around the country.

Our youth climate movement is connected like no other movement in our world's history. Thanks to the internet, we can instantly communicate with people around the country and globe - like I am doing right now - and spread awareness, organize, and make change!! Right??

It sounds almost like it should be easy by now! And yet, "making change" -- and especially knowing when we are making change and what that even means-- is really hard.

Over here at ACE, we have been lucky enough to work with over 40 high school students from around the country this past summer. Many of them shared their stories with us.

And now, each week, we will share a youth climate hero story. The students we are profiling are taking one of the boldest steps, getting involved in the first place. Their projects really span the gap of what is possible and have the power to show others what it can mean to get involved.
