Become a LSSI School or Community Partner

How to Become A Community Partner?

If you are a government agency, non-profit organization, unit of local government, or a business, we welcome your participation as a community partner. Community partners may have a stewardship need that they would like a school or class to address, or perhaps you want to support one of the ongoing school-community partnership projects listed here: http://lakesuperiorstewardship.org/projects.php   

A list of LSSI community partners is posted here: http://lakesuperiorstewardship.org/about.php  

For more information, you may want to read about the goals and strategies of the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) at:  http://www.glstewardship.org/. The GLSI has established eight Great Lakes Hubs throughout Michigan since 2008. The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) is one of the eight hubs.  

To learn more about becoming a community partner, please contact a member of the LSSI Leadership Team listed below.  The LSSI Leadership Team facilitates connections between teachers and community partners.

How Can Schools Get Involved? 

Teachers, school administrators, and school board members can read about the goals and strategies of the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (GLSI) at:  http://www.glstewardship.org/. The GLSI has established eight Great Lakes hubs throughout Michigan since 2008, of which the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative (LSSI) is one of those hubs.  

The Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative welcomes new partner schools, and especially new teachers and grades at schools where existing school-community projects exist: http://lakesuperiorstewardship.org/projects.php
