''Green Youth Movement (GYM), a non-profit organization located in Beverly Hills, CA, was established by mother-daughter team Rochelle and Ally Maize in 2005. Ally was inspired to start GYM after watching "The Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore in a school science class. Concerned by what she learned about global warming, Ally decided to be proactive. She wanted to reach out to other children to make them aware of the environmental concerns, thus GYM was born. GYM’s mission is to educate kids worldwide on environmental awareness & living green, and to integrate this information as part of the curriculum in elementary schools. In 2011, GYM spearheaded a partnership with The Education and Environment Initiative (EEI). The state of California approved this curriculum for the classroom and GYM’s goal was achieved!''
