Members of the Young Harris College community are spearheading efforts across many aspects of the College to be better stewards of resources, to reduce the carbon footprint of the College and its individual members and to seek out new ways to integrate sustainability into their everyday lives. Much of the green movement at YHC is driven by the current generation of students. Discarded or unwanted items and materials are being recycled or reused; new buildings are being constructed to U.S. Green Building Council standards; existing resources are being repurposed; alternative energy sources are being explored and developed; and students are forming alliances and creating mechanisms to make a difference at YHC and beyond.
