Youth Team Leaders

The amazing team of youth that are at the forefront of our organization.

Check out our awesome team of youth leaders on the International Council


My name is Aerielle, I am 13 and I go to Horizons School.  I am a Boulder Earth Guardian because I love the Earth.  I understand that there are some serious problems involving the Earth right now and I know that we the children need to come together to step in to make a difference.  I live in the mountains and enjoy playing out side, and that is one of the reasons that I care about the Earth.  I get to see the beautiful nature and not just the city.  I also love reading, writing and playing with my pets.


My name is Amaya and I am an 13 year old girl. I lived in the jungles of Costa Rica growing up and got to spend lots of days at the beach there where I learned to love the ocean. It's so sad to see the harm humans are doing to the world's oceans and I want to do something to change this. I am an Earth Guardian because I believe that kids can make a difference - it's our world!


Hey, I am Gunnar and I got involved with Earth Guardian because I was concerned about what was happening with animal abuse and animal extinction that is happening all over the planet.  Earth Guardians gives me a place to express my concerns and take them into action to make changes to help protect these animals.  I am also into film making and media and have been able to use my skills to put together Earth Guardian promo's and footage from our events.


Hi my name is Haiden, I live in Gold Hill, I'm 13, and I go to Casey Middle School. I've joined Earth Guardians because I see it as a way to make change. I've always been an environmentalist, but I am much stronger in a group. My main concerns lay mainly in the horrors of industrial food, and what a positive impact natural predators have on a dying ecosystem. I'm going to take responsibility for this world, and my fellow Earth Guardians and I will do what we can to turn this world around.


My name is Harper, I’m 13 years old, and I live in Boulder. I enjoy drawing monsters, swimming, and playing with friends in my free time. I joined Earth Guardians because my generation deserves a better future. A future where kids won’t have to clean up the mess that adults have left for them. A future where dolphins, pandas and elephants still exist. A future where the Earth is still inhabitable for all living things. I believe if we all work together a future like this is achievable.



Hi, my name is Itzcuauhtli, I am 9 years old and I go to Crestview Elementary School.  I am an Earth Guardian because I care about the Earth.  I am very sad about what people have done to jeopardize our future.  I want to teach everyone to take better care of the earth NOW so that we aren’t left with such a big mess to clean up.  I am especially worried what is happening in our oceans, and want to focus on being a voice to help protect them.


Hi! My name is Jazmine, I'm 13 and I go to Horizons k-8 school. I am an Earth Guardian because I care about my future and the next generations future. Its time to use the power of our voices and our hearts, and tell everyone that doesn't believe what we're saying, that if they don't wake up soon, were all going to be screwed. Love the Earth and love yourself, the Earth Guardians are representing an entire generation of stronger and smarter kids. We know whats happening and were going to do something about it!


Hi I am Myra, and I am 13 years old.  the reason I am in Earth Guardians is because I want to be able to make a choice on the kind of future I want and how its going to be.  Our Earth is our home and we are trashing it!  We need to get up and stand up for the right of our Earth and our lives before its to late!


Hi, I am Nicky.  I am 11 years old and I homeschool.  I have always been interested in recycling and conserving natural resources.  I am also especially interested in sea life and how these creatures are affected by pesticide run-off and other pollutants and litter.  With the Earth Guardians, I think I can do something to help with these issues and work towards saving the earth. 


My name is Quetzal Suriano.  I am 10 years old.  I am a home schooler. I am a Earth Guardian because I care about the plants and animals.  I hope that the effort that I am making can change how much they are suffering from how much we are disrespecting them.  I want to make a difference!


I am Sedona and I am 14 years old. I love all the creatures that creep most kids out, like snakes, insects and lizards. I am home-schooled and enjoy spending my time creating art, listening to fantasy books, and learning about nature. I joined Earth Guardians because I want to help make Boulder a better place to live, with less pollution and pesticides.


Hi, my name is Sofia, I am 11, and I go to Foothill Elementary.  I chose to be involved in Earth Guardians because I saw the opportunity to make a difference in my life and for those around me.  We work very hard and there are so many serious issues to change, so by working together in a group we can make these changes faster.  We need you all to help get this done.


Hey there, I am Trinity and I am 10 years old.  I am an Earth Guardian because I care about the Earth and the Animals that inhabit it.  They are in trouble and are disappearing because of the harm we have done.  I want to learn as much as I can so I can teach other people, and my little brother and sister, that if we become educated on what's happening and change the way we are living, we have the power to make a change.


I am Will.  I am 8 years old and I homeschool.  I love the Earth and that is why I am an Earth Guardian. My special interests are in plants, worms, and other insects.  I want to protect them and their home so I am going to fight for them with all the other Earth Guardians.



Hi my name is Xiuhtezcatl, and I am a 13 year old boy.  I am an Earth Guardian because I believe that if we educate ourselves about the dire state of our planet, it will give us the power to change the course of our future.  One of my main concerns is what is happening with the Earth’s forests and how it is impacting the lives of animals, people and our future.  My mission as an Earth Guardian is to bring awareness to as many people as I can, not so people can blame the mistakes that we have made on each other that have gotten us into this mess, but so that we can stand together and make a change.
