Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are integral to Green Building United.

Every year volunteers help achieve our mission, and there are a variety of ways to engage with our organization. Opportunities include serving on a committee, helping day-of at an event, and donating time to a project. If you have volunteer ideas, we'd love to hear them; contact Leah Wirgau. Note that some volunteer opportunities require individuals to have individual membership.

Events

Our major events (Sustainability Symposium, New Gravity Housing Conference, and Groundbreakers Awards) would not run as smoothly without the help of our volunteers. If interested in volunteering for one of these events, please contact Margaret Salamon.

Other event volunteer opportunities are announced in our e-newsletter as they become available.

Projects

The 2017 Community Impact Project was a dyanamic inititiave developed and led by volunteers. Volunteers released a request for concepts and after careful consideration selected NKCDC's Frankford Gateway initiative. Volunteers then raised funds, and coordinated logistics for a volunteer day where over 60 people prepared soil, weeded, picked up trash, and planted a variety of trees, shubs, and flowers. 

If interested in volunteering with the 2018 Community Impact Project, please contact Leah Wirgau, Education and Engagement Manager, for details.
