After a long recruitment process, we have finally assembled our team of leaders! We spent our first meeting playing name games, sharing interesting facts, and going over what the program is going to look like this year. Oakland High is going to be apart of our Waste Action Program, tackling waste issues both on and off campus by bringing awareness to peers and the public and working together to develop solutions! From conducting waste audits, to training Junior ESA members on how to monitor, to hosting litter marches we are ready to get this year started!

Check out OUR TEAM below..

Hi, my name is Nicole V. and as you can see I joined an internship called Earth Team. A bit about me and my hobbies, I am deeply into the world of art and some of you that are reading this have probably seen my visual art posts on my social medias. But I am into more than just drawing. I also like to dance, write, and play viola. Out of all the types of art I am involved in, I would have to say the best is probably writing. Although you may see small sketches on my class worksheets, or even spot me trying to break dance in the new building during lunch.
