Coronavirus/COVID-19 | George Mason

The leadership at the Washington Youth Summit on the Environment (WYSE) is working in tandem with the leadership at George Mason University to create a plan in response to COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority, and we recognize that families registered for WYSE have questions and concerns about this summer.

At this time, we are planning to run the Summit. We have extended your deadline to cancel and receive a partial refund to April 15. Please know that if Mason is forced to cancel WYSE, all families will receive a full refund of the tuition paid.

We hope to have more clarity on the situation in the next month and will keep you all posted via email and social media. We appreciate your patience as we work through this situation and plan for the summer.

CALLING ALL CHANGEMAKERS WORKING ON ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES: During this time of uncertainty, young people are still moving their projects forward and are working hard to solve some of our planet's most pressing challenges. Ashoka and General Motors have teamed up to to launch our second annual Our Planet, Our Purpose: STEM for Changemaking Challenge. This year we are recognizing young people who are solving the world’s most pressing environmental challenges -- we are looking for US based young changemakers ages 14-18 to submit changemaker projects through our Platform. bit.ly/STEMforCM We are really excited to be able to provide opportunities to changemakers who might be looking during this time. Selected changemakers will win $1,000 in seed funding and an all-expenses paid trip to GM’s Detroit, Michigan, headquarters for the Changemaker Summit (upon our ability to travel again). During this two-day immersive experience, teams will receive mentorship from General Motors executives and skills training from Ashoka. In addition, teams will receive ongoing mentorship and skills development to support their projects. Please let me know if you have any questions, and share this with any one who will fit the criteria. Keep creating change!

"The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." Edward Kennedy 🌟 Environmental Solutions “A point has been reached in history when we must shape our actions throughout the world with a more prudent care for their environmental consequences. Through ignorance or indifference we can do massive and irreversible harm to the earthly environment on which our life and well being depend. Conversely, through fuller knowledge and wiser action, we can achieve for ourselves and our posterity a better life in an environment more in keeping with human needs and hopes …" 🌟 “To defend and improve the human environment for present and future generations has become an imperative goal for mankind.” 🌟 Stewardship in Christianity follows from the belief that human beings are created by the same God who created the entire universe and everything in it.

Nervous mom here...other than making sure this is a safe program, I'd like to know how this program would benefit my daughter who wants to be a Veterinarian?
I am a delegate for this program , but unable to attend due to the tuition of 1995 $ . I wanted to know if any accommodations or exceptions could be made , I would be so thrilled . Otherwise , this would only be a discernible , something that I at least was eligible for to say I was . I beg any assistance !
