San Francisco & Atlanta (PRWEB) April 28, 2011
Rocket21™ (the new social network where kids explore amazing possibilities for their lives and futures) and the Captain Planet Foundation (supporting hands-on environmental projects for children and youth) are teaming up to increase awareness of green careers and lifestyle choices among 21st century kids.
"Rocket21 kids have shown a deep passion for protecting the environment – and they want to learn and do more,” said Rocket21 CEO Mark Grayson. "Our partnership with Captain Planet Foundation brings direct access to world-class experts for all our members."
Hundreds of experts, called R21 PROs, from hundreds of fields have been invited to interact with Rocket21 student members. They include explorers, artists, ecologists, business executives, entertainers, scientists, engineers, nurses, doctors, educators, and many others – people who do some of the amazing things kids dream of doing.
“The kids on Rocket21 are already showing a real devotion to the environment,” notes Ira Blumenthal, President of Captain Planet Foundation. “Now with our network of experts and passionate stewards of the planet on board, they’ll develop a realistic sense of what’s at stake, what needs to be done, and how they can help.”
Rocket21 provides unprecedented access to world-class experts and organizations while protecting them with a combination of state-of-the-art, real-time filtering and human moderation, extensive safety and security precautions, and a specialized infrastructure designed to keep kids safe.
Captain Planet Foundation provides funding and support for hands-on, environmental projects for children and youths.
