New Leaf Collaborative


New Leaf Collaborative (NLC) is a California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation whose mission is to provide hands-on, experiential learning and leadership opportunities, in areas of science, nature and ecological literacy in order to nurture the social and emotional health of TK-14 students, educators and community partners. NLC does this through several programs in and out of schools throughout Contra Costa County where program outcomes are guided by social and emotional learning standards and create connection to place, community, and civic engagement. NLC strives to cultivate healthy communities and individuals, intellectually curious learners and responsible, ecologically literate citizens.  

Vision

The New Leaf Collaborative seeks to connect community, resources and expertise to students so that learning  is linked to real-life exploration, community-based projects and career-focused pathways in order to cultivate healthy communities and individuals, intellectually curious learners, and responsible, ecologically literate citizens.
