    GVAStudent Quotations:

    "The Green Ventures Academy at John F Kennedy High School is a groundbreaking class that is blazing new trails for high school students who are interested in the green hospitality, tourist, and management industry. The class offers students many opportunities to gain experience and knowledge of careers that interest them. The academy goes on numerous field trips to job shadow and also to colleges to help the students get on a track to success. In addition they also recycle and grow organic crops to use in culinary class, which offers hands on learning. I am glad that I joined Green Ventures and Im sure many of my fellow classmates are as well." -Nate Bernardo

    "I have been a part of Green Ventures for two years now and as the academy has grown so have I. The people in it are amazing and together we have grown into a large family that help each other succeed academically and in attempts of creating a greener future. The events we have catered to, the field trips weve been on and the projects we have set forth have given me the opportunity to many experiences that will help aid me in planning my future while still in high school. I am glad that Luke Aseo had dragged me into his advisory one day last year, or else I would have never been enrolled in such a great program." -Chelsea Ancheta
