Empower youth voices for climate action.
We aim to educate, empower, and activate youth.
Illustrating global issues of climate change by educating youth through a solutions-based approach at the local scale.
Giving students ownership through the opportunity to investigate and invent tangible, local climate-solutions, and forums to best voice their ideas and concerns.
Open the door for students to take action on policies and climate solutions in their local landscapes, by engaging business and community leaders to co-create more sustainable, resilient communities.
We believe youth are key to solving the climate challenge because they influence and foster climate concern among their parents, communities, and decision-makers. Our goal is to develop a cohesive youth voice that influences decision-makers to embrace climate solutions. TCI aims to educate, empower and activate 1 million youth to reach this goal by 2025.
Kennebunkport, Maine is a special place. It’s the quintessential Maine town; complete with a small fishing village, a working harbor, beautiful beaches and an iconic lighthouse set against a rocky landscape. It’s also an endangered place. Kennebunkport abuts the Gulf of Maine, which is warming faster than any other body of water its size in the world. In 80 years, if we do nothing, much of this iconic New England town will be underwater. While we are a small town in Maine on the frontline of climate change, we could also be any town in this country…we are all facing futures impacted by climate change. But by bonding together we can decide what that future looks like.

Javan Santos is a young policymaker who champions using policy as a tool to fight climate change. Born and raised in the island of Guam, Javan is an indigenous CHamoru and a proud Pacific Islander. Obtaining a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Guam, Javan understands the important relationship between politics and environmental protection, especially from the perspective of learning in a Pacific Island and a U.S. territory.
The Pacific Islands are highly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, so Javan has worked to craft his skills in policy, having about seven years of policy experience. Javan was the Speaker of the Guam Youth Congress, a youth elected legislative body that writes and passes bills and submits them to the Guam Legislature for review. Serving in the Guam Youth Congress for six years, his notable policy accomplishment was successfully passing into law a plastic bag ban for the island of Guam. Javan has also worked as a policy analyst for the Guam Legislature, and has even interned in Congress with the Asian Pacific American Institute of Congressional Studies (APAICS). In both capacities, Javan drafted legislation on a variety of topics including renewable energy, agricultural protections, and indigenous fishing rights.
In his off time, Javan volunteers as an editor for a youth-led Asian American and Pacific Islander newsletter called the Yappie. He also enjoys learning how to make Pacific Islander desserts and playing Pokémon with friends.
Originally from central Wisconsin amongst the corn and cows, Hajna (she/her/hers) grew up and went to school all over central Maine, north of TCI’s headquarters. Growing up, she always loved being outside and knew she wanted her career to involve two things at least: working with youth and something to do with the outdoors. It wasn’t until college, however – where she got her BA from Bowdoin College in Environmental Studies and Government/Policy, with a minor in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies – that she was able to start exploring her home state and pursuing this path. Since this discovery, Hajna has dedicated her professional life to environmental education, policy, and advocacy – including work at the Nature Conservancy, JustME for JustUS, Defenders of Wildlife, the Maine People’s Alliance, and as Head of Outdoor Education at a local Maine summer camp. Hajna’s biggest passion and goal is to increase access to and encourage participation in the outdoors and environmental world for all youth, especially those who have historically been underrepresented in this space. She fully believes in the power exposure to nature and proper support can have in sparking a desire to get involved in climate action – as it did for her. Lucky for her, this is TCI’s specialty! Hajna looks forward to getting more diverse youth involved in climate action and spreading opportunities and education to all – as we need voices now more than ever to enact change. When she’s not working (and sometimes even while she is), Hajna can be found enjoying Maine’s beautiful outdoors in any capacity: hammocking, hiking, swimming, skiing, kayaking, reading, or generally adventuring with friends and as many dogs as possible.
