In the classroom & special programs

The Water Education Foundation offers a variety of programs to teach students, our future voters and leaders, and young professionals about water.

  • Our yearlong Water Leaders program identifies up-and-coming community leaders from diverse backgrounds, including members of minority and ethnic communities, and educates them about water issues.
  • The Water Education Foundation serves as the California coordinator for Project WET (Water Education for Teachers), an international K-12 program designed for formal and non-formal educators.
  • Students in grades K-14 learn about the history, geography and science of water, and the difficult decisions surrounding this complex issue. All Water Education Foundation classroom materials are consistent with the standards of the California State Frameworks for Science and History/Social Science and are designed to correlate with grade-level teaching requirements.
