With HON’s Director of Sustainability, Jaclyn Mothupi, currently leading as advisory board chair, our team regularly attends Academy meetings to identify needs and challenges inside of classrooms, and collectively works to remove barriers to leverage resources for student success and engagement. Our staff has had the opportunity to provide mentorship to Glencliff’s Garden Club, and has provided externship leadership which has yielded significant Project Based Learning opportunities to increase food security.

Through community involvement, the Hands On Nashville team has worked to engage corporate partners and volunteers in service to improve student-learning environments, providing walking trails, a courtyard makeover, subject-inspired murals, improved garden beds, and freshly painted halls. With more projects on the horizon, we look forward to continuing our great partnership with the Academy of Environmental & Urban Planning at Glencliff High School in the years to come!
