We The Future

  Earth Guardians has partnered with Amplifier to share new icons of strong youth leaders with school kids - and provide a curriculum of teaching tools for their classrooms

Earth Guardians has partnered with Amplifier to share new icons of strong youth leaders with school kids - and provide a curriculum of teaching tools for their classrooms


The Education Amplifier program We The Future provides an opportunity for educators to bring Amplifier’s art, lesson plans and resources into classrooms across the country to facilitate dialogue about social justice issues.

With over 2,500 registered teachers in every state of the U.S., Amplifier's 2017 pilot program brought topics around privilege, identity, addressing racism and teaching tolerance into schools.

Through a monthly webinar, resource email, free art and lesson plans built in collaboration with partners to bring this work into the classrooms, Amplifier is providing critical and requested support to help teachers inspire the future leaders of our country.

Earth Guardians Youth Director Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is one of the ten young leaders depicted in the icons artwork being shared to inspire the next generation of young leaders. Earth Guardians is working in collaboration with Amplifier to bring our own curriculum to over 20,000 schools.

Spread the word, support the work and get the free art and resources if you’re a teacher!

"The future of our generation is at stake"

-Earth Guardian & YouthvGov plaintiff Victoria Barrett

"People label our generation as dreamers, but hope is not the only tool we have. I am a teenager. I want to do what I love and live a life full of opportunities. I want the generation that follows to have the same chance. I absolutely refuse to let our government's harmful action, corporate greed, and the pure denial of climate science get in the way of that. If anything, I'm going to use my positive energy to show my government that I won't let my world stop for them. WE won't let our world stop for them. Our generation will continue to be a force for the world."
