Since 2009, Joey has educated over 50,000 K-12 students about our shared environmental challenges and what we can do to address them. Building off science content around energy, climate and waste, his assemblies emphasize taking action on these issues and leverage the legacy of social movements throughout history to help inspire students to make a difference and achieve greatness. The secret sauce of his delivery are “Rap Ups” -- a unique approach to learning that blends the world’s most global cause and music.

In addition to assemblies, Joey has helped implement over 60 green school projects and curricular initiatives. Projects around solar energy, pedal power, the Plastic Challenge, and more help develop STEM and critical thinking skillsets while making a positive environmental impact. For schools seeking to tap into and galvanize their green school spirit around bold goals, Joey has helped schools raise over $150,000 for a medley of green school projects. Additionally, Joey raised more than $1.3 million for sustainability in schools as the founder and Executive Director of Climate Cycle.
Beyond environmental education, Joey taught the first ever rap class at the Old Town School of Music, delivered spoken word workshops on equality and helped develop field learning experiences across a multitude of subject matters.
Joey has an unparalleled passion for positive change and a gift in sharing it to students and seniors alike. In my 11 years in the classroom and as an Assistant Principal, I have yet to come across someone as genuinely inspirational and loved by teachers and students. His message transcends school and really speaks to people, young and old, as agents of change. If there is one thing that the world of education needs most, it is more people like Joey FineRhyme Feinstein.

Joey's presentation at the Junior Statesmen of America (JSA) Regional Conference was outstanding. In a room of over 500 high school students, he delivered an impactful speech that not only inspired our audience but also motivated them to act. His delivery was memorable and fun, so much that there was a line of students waiting to talk to Joey after his speech. JSA students were fortunate to hear from such a passionate, kind and dedicated leader.
