The Camarines National High School Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) facilitates environmental projects by mobilizing the school through activities like tree planting and parenting (CSNHS Forest Park Project); symposia on environment and health concerns; street and coastal clean-up; environmental campaigns through signage; bulletin announcements; Green film showing; essays and poster making contests; solid waste recovery through Project SAVE; and participation in international Earth-saving events like Green Wave, Earth Hour, etc.


With the school's 'Basura Ko, Dala Ko' and 'Reward System', paper conservation and plastic wrappers policies minimized the solid wastes in the campus. With 'School in a Garden' program, the school maintains mini-garden, mini-forest, urban vegetable garden, orchidarium, big trees and a 3-hectare area in Mt. Isarog National Park. The school also manages Aquaculture Project, Livestock Farming and Project Rain Gauge. School Maintenance and Repairs and Disaster Committees monitor other resources like electricity, waterways and buildings.

Embedded in its vision and mission, school's curricula promote environmental awareness specifically through Family Farming Curriculum (FFC) and Engineering and Science Education Program (ESEP).
