Dow Young Professionals Help Houston School
In March, 195 young professionals from Dow's Propel to Excel learning and talent development program transformed a playground at Gabriela Mistral Early Childhood Education Center in Houston, Texas into a nature-based outdoor learning center. The event was conducted in partnership with Keep Houston Beautiful, as part of Keep America Beautiful's Great American CleanupTM. Dow volunteers painted a mural, planted trees, and built benches, tables, planters, as well as a puppet theater. Educators at the school are using the new space to give students a hands-on approach to learning about nature.
