    Disney Friends for Change club at Brea Olinda High School will hold classes that are primarily focused on environment at Brea library on January. Disney Friends for Change (also referred to as Friends for Change: Project Green) is a pro-social “green” initiative that started in the summer of 2009.

      According to United States Environmental Protection Agency(EPA), environmental education increases public awareness and knowledge about environmental issues or problems. Also, it provides the public with the necessary skills to make informed decisions and take responsible action.

        The primary purpose of Disney Friends for Change club is to raise the awareness of children about the significance of saving the environment. As most effective way to achieve the club’s main purpose, club members are planning to hold “actual” classes for children at the Brea Library.

          Throughout the January, they will be holding three classes for children. In the first class, they will do activities regarding water cycle. In the second class, they will teach the concept of 3R with various visual resources, in addition to activities. Lastly, they will explain about trophic levels in the third class.

            “I think it’s a good thing for not only the children but the teenagers instructing the classes. They will be able to learn more about the environment and take a more active role in spreading awareness of the impact of human influence on the environment,” Alisa Fang, sophomore at BOHS, said.

              Starting this week, Disney Friends for Change club members will start preparing for the classes by making the visual resources and planning for activities that can encourage children’s learning.

                Besides the library session activity, Disney Friends for Change club members will do the school cleanup on Thursday to initiative “green.” Anyone interested in participating in the class or helping with class can contact 714-671-1722 or email samantha.smith@occr.ocgov.com.
