As you know, Socially Equal Energy Efficient Development, or SEEED is a local non-profit whose mission is to create pathways out of poverty for young adults through career readiness training, while equipping communities with environmental literacy skills. Over the last two sessions SEEED has served 23 young people. Nine are currently working and one has started his own computer repair company.  Of those 23 young people, 11 are scheduled to graduate from our program, which we are celebrating through our Green Tie Event.


Additionally, not only have these students gone through our Career Readiness Program, they have been the heart and soul of our environmental literacy campaign. Through this campaign SEEED has given over 1,000 people energy saving tips, surveyed 350 people about their energy usage, and educated over 185 people at the Savings in the House workshops. With that being said, we need your help to keep this momentum going. So, we’re asking you to support the Green Tie Event.


As mentioned, SEEED would be grateful if you helped co-sponsor this event in support of our students. The Green Tie Event will be held at The Square Room located at 4 Market Square, Knoxville, TN 37902. The event will take place April 28th, 2015 from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm. We are expecting an audience of 100 donors, supporters, and other SEEED family. The sponsorship logo will be on a 9x6 event program. breakdown is as follows:
