Cool the Earth offers a turn-key program that educates students and their families about climate change and inspires them to take simple actions to reduce carbon emissions. The program, for K-8 students, is run by parent or teacher volunteers outside of class time.

There are four main components to the award-winning program:
1. Kick-off assembly - This fun event empowers kids to take action. Ther school's teachers are the actors with Cool the Earth providing scripts, costumes and support.
2. Action Coupons - Students receive a booklet with 20 easy, energy-saving actions they and their family can take.
3. Actions of the Month - these events engage students in a specific action providing hands-on activities and more in-depth energy information.
4. Measuring Success - coupons are tallied and tracked on a banner displayed on campus demonstrating the value of community action and that every action counts!
