Impact Statement

One of the most important aspects of H2O on the Go efforts and projected effectiveness is putting a face to water and putting Living City Works into action. A feasibility study performed at Johnson Middle School, Bradenton, FL put our environmental program to the test. This feasibility study was designed to observe our youth's reaction and interest in our program as well as feedback from science teachers. In one day over a 7 hour span more than 200 sixth grade students were introduced to Living City Works hands-on environmental program performed by nine highly qualified volunteer environmental professionals. The students showed a mix of amazement and wonder as they engaged, participated and learned about water, where it comes from, where it goes, pollution and pollution control and the impacts we as humans have on this cycle. Volunteer environmental professionals prove to be pivotal in this environment as they concurrently answered student's questions about cause and effects, regulations, and countless hows and whys not found in test books.

Gilbert W McNeal Elementary School has also been a pivotal contribution of feedback, support and input that helped us mold Living City Works environmental program. To date H2O on the Go contributed over $5,000 to this school to help rebuild their science building, support their math programs, and donated a 3-dimentional environmental table top model supporting their science curriculum. This table top model costs $880.
 


 

Needs Statement

Financial: As with all non-profit organizations, gracious benefactors play a vital role in its success.With 61 schools and 95 grade groups in Manatee County School District (Elementary schools account for two grade groups; k-2, 3-5) the cost per program average $1300-1400 {depends on types of environmental table-top models}. Projected needs are $128,546 to fulfill our commitment to Manatee County School District. 

After Manatee County School District is provided for we then move on to Sarasota County, then Charlotte County, and so on until the State of Florida is complete.

Volunteers: Environmental Professionals, Event Support, and Management if  software upkeep networking schools and volunteer environmental professionals.

In-Kind: We rely on local companies to provide gifted products and services for H2O on the Go fundraisers, events as well as environmental professionals providing time, talent and environmental tools.
 
Advisory Board: The advisory board, comprised of a balanced mix of school teachers, directors of STEM curriculum, environmental professionals, and college professors teaching environmental studies as well as their undergraduates. The reason for the advisory board diversity is that input from these groups help the flow and direction of H2O on the Go® program(s).
Background Statement

Feedback and input from teachers and principals solidified that our program and company philosophy is more than worthy and wanted. It is needed.

Shifting Perspective from Reactive to Proactive: If we only knew then what we know now…We see a duck and call it a duck. However, our reaction to seeing a duck covered with oil caused from an oil spill may then be referred to as a catastrophe, sin, mess, or sad conjuring several reactions and emotions. How to become a part of a proactive solution? Our youth is not exempt of these very same questions and now is the time to provide the environmental education and understanding they need to be part of a big picture solution. They are our future. They are our future leaders and contributors to their communities. They are the core importance and purpose of H2O on the Go.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
As with any start-up and non-profit company, transparency and understanding where funds are allocated as well as company integrity are vital. As owners of our own companies, we relate and greatly respect this this need.
 
Our intent and commitment is to pass-on the knowledge and environmental experience we earned through decades. Our potential is unlimited. Volunteer environmental professionals show eagerness to share their field experience.
We will make aware to all benefactors and contributors where their funds are allocated, and if there are special requests to where funds are allocated we are open to this as well. Currently we are looking at software to streamline this effort. Further, available progress updates as to program effectiveness and program add-ons will be posted to our website, ongoing.
 
Part of our incentive for schools and teachers to make the most of the free-to-the schools environmental programs is the that 10% of income for Manatee County School District goes to a college scholarship fund for students pursuing science, technology, engineering, math and environmental studies.
 
We welcome and encourage benefactors and contributors to attend events to witness our efforts and message. We have invested countless hours into developing this program, as well as our personal funds. However, we did not anticipate the almost two year wait for our 501(c)(3) non profit status.Now that is in place, we are highly committed to seeing our program(s) through.
 
 
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
Florida-based co-founders Julie Rose and Craig Intelisano incorporated H2O on the Go® as a non-profit company shortly after the Gulf Oil Spill. If the Gulf Oil Spill was not enough to jolt us into motion, we dare ask what else will. With a combined 32 years of great fortune being in the environmental profession working closely with environmental professionals, such as Geologist and Hydrogeologists, we set-forth the goal to make every day an Earth Day. No book, one day a year awareness, or movie can sum up or impact what water really means to everyone. When hearing field stories from first-hand account from people who have daily environmental field experience working with water, it brings to life the real story of water, and naturally a unique environmental educational experience to the classroom. 
Programs
Description

Considering todays modern technologies, we incorporate 3-dimensional hands-on interactive environmental table-top models simulating a living city in action..

Living City Works™ programs come complete with a reusable 3-dimentional environmental table-top model, activities, planned interactive conversations, environmental educational printouts and a years-worth of program supplies. H2O on the Go® connects local volunteer environmental professionals to Manatee County School District working as teacher liaison, guest speaker and available for Q&A.

Starting with group K-2, H2O on the Go® provides Living City Works™
programs to Manatee County Elementary Schools. As students graduate to the next grade-group {grades 3-5} they are introduced to more detailed 3-dimensional hands-on table top models and environmental education. The same progress of environmental education is applied to grades 6-8, 9-12. And so the team work begins the making of Proactive Environmental Community Unity.

Program Success Monitoring
Our feasibility studies prove that volunteer environmental professionals enrich the environmental education experience. Our volunteer environmental professionals and H2O on the GO staff will be reviewing quarterly program progress through non-graded quizzes and annual water events where students put forth what they learned and how they are part of the solution.
Program Success Examples
FEASABLITY
STUDY APRIL 19, 2011: Johnson Middle School, Bradenton, FL: 6th
Grade Science total of 240 students
Living City Works™ Coastal Regions and and Drinking Water / Waste
Water table top models: Comprised of nine Volunteer Environmental Professionals from local community: Full day of 240 students split into 80 students per group. Each period two groups were sent to one lab where two demonstrations took place, and the other 2 groups sent to the second lab where two demonstrations took place. By the end of the day 240 students were introduced to Living City Works™.
Summary of result: Volunteer Environmental Professionals performing environmental table top model demonstrations prove to be very powerful. The labs were abuzz and the student’s questions were pointed and endless. What we discovered is 30 minutes is not enough time to even scratch the surface of their curiosity. These need to be in classrooms.

Campaign Purpose Living City Works™ interactive 3-dimensional environmental table top models are 100% gifted to the school and most importantly they are 100% reusable serving the schools and their students for decades. So the initial costs to satisfy Manatee County School District is a one-time investment. However, up keeping our backyard will require ongoing funds because we have continual awareness events and environmental program add-ons, environmental board games and environmental interactive video games. Further 10% of revenue for Manatee County School District is going toward a college fund designed for students pursing science, technology, engineering, math or the environment.
