Building Leadership

CEED works to build leadership through community cross-learning. The Twin Cities Energy Efficiency Cohort (EE Cohort) is a local collaborative project intended to engage various hyper-local community organizations serving BIPOC and low-income residents, neighborhood associations, and individual community members around home energy justice and the environment.



Youth Opportunities: CEED is committed to building leadership among our young people through our Youth in Environmental Learning and Leadership (YELL!) program, paid internship opportunities and ongoing Popular Education work.

YELL! is a program for young people who are interested in social justice and protecting the environment. It is a program to engage, educate and empower youth of color (ages 18-25) to make a difference in their community through learning and hands-on community projects. The YELL! Program will be returning to CEED in 2024.
