Our Impact

Around the world, over 300 schools and institutions are implementing the 8 Shields model that NCMF is working to bring to millions of people all over the world. This movement is already transforming the lives of youth and adults worldwide – building stronger, healthier communities and ensuring that young people are positioned as the empathic, empowered environmental stewards that our world so desperately needs.
