Young Professionals

We use our time and resources to support the Fairchild Challenge, environmental clean-ups, sustainability discussions, policy discussions, education, and more.

The Fairchild Challenge combines hands-on research, creativity and a wide variety of engaging projects. The annual, standards-based program offers a menu of separate but parallel interdisciplinary Challenge options for public and private middle and high schools, attracting students of diverse interests, abilities, talents, and backgrounds. In its eight years of existence, the program has become one of the world’s most comprehensive and influential youth environmental education programs.

We are a non-profit and we raise funds to support The Fairchild Challenge program. Our organization is made up of all volunteers.

We are serious about the environment, but we are also serious about having fun. Whether through our happy hours around Miami’s hottest bars and restaurants or signature events at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, add us to your “Fun” calendar!

The Fairchild Palms, Fairchild's young professionals, are volunteers composed of South Florida's future leaders.
