What is Climate Crew?


Anna Manthei, Editor

Climate Crew is an eco club at Esperanza that focuses on raising awareness about various environmental issues and providing service hour opportunities to students. This is Climate Crew’s second year on the club roster and is led by Presidents Grace Li and Anna Manthei, Vice President Matthew Hoang, and Secretary/Treasurer Abby Lu, with teacher advisors Mrs. Nguyen-Valdez and Mr. Nguyen. Some activities hosted by Climate Crew include making posters, hosting beach cleanups, gardening, and participating in various activities designed to teach students about the environmental crisis and how to help. Currently, Climate Crew is in the process of creating a garden on west campus to improve the campus environment and provide a place for club members and students to visit. Climate Crew has also participated in a beach cleanup hosted by the OC Coastkeeper. Participants earned service hours, cleaned up Huntington Beach, and spent time learning about environmental protection. For students looking to earn service hours and protect the environment, Climate Crew is the perfect club to join this 2022-2023 school year!
