Pennsylvania TSA Green Initiative



Mission Statement: The PA-TSA Green Initiative promotes environmental awareness and activism within the PA-TSA organization and aspires to expand efforts to TSA members state-wide, nationally, and internationally.

The PA-TSA Green Initiative and Environmental Committee were approved by the Pennsylvania TSA State Officer Team at the PA-TSA Annual Leadership Conference and Board of Director’s (BOD) meeting at Bucknell University in July of 2009. Since then, the committee has worked towards implementing innovative environment-promoting events/ideas that will set the precedent for future environmental initiatives within career/technical student organizations and allow PA-TSA to make a positive impact on our 21st century society.
