Green Light Go is dedicated to making the world a better place. We believe that the best way to do that is with a well-educated population. To that end, we make it a point to be actively involved with educational activities within the community. Besides substitute teaching and tutoring, Green Light Go participates in the various ways listed below.

The "Take a Little, Leave a Lot" Scholarship

In 2011, Dominic Canare established an annual scholarship at Wichita State University. The scholarship rotates through each of the colleges, and a faculty committee within each college selects the recipient.

Besides helping to relieve the financial burden higher education poses on a student, the scholarship also serves to raise awareness to the idea that everybody can do something to make the world a better place.

Details about the 'Take a Little, Leave a Lot' Scholarship can be found here.

MakeICT

MakeICT is Wichita's Makerspace, where they innovate, learn, and build community at the intersection of art, technology, science, and culture. MakeICT helps connect people within the Wichita community who have a desire to learn with people who want to share what they know.

Green Light Go's founder, Dominic Canare, is a co-founder and board member of MakeICT.

Wichita State University: Engineering 101

Wichita State University's Engineering 101 course assists engineering students in exploring engineering careers and opportunities, provides information on academic and life skills essential to becoming a successful engineering student, promotes connections to specific engineering majors, and provides activities to assist and reinforce the decision to major in engineering.

With the increasing popularity of technology in the lives of young adults, Green Light Go has found many ways to augment the traditional classroom learning experience with various technologies. Nearly all course materials are available freely to the public.
