Green Apple Day of Service

ABOUT THE DAY OF SERVICE
The USGBC-Illinois Chapter and the National Center for Green Schools is inviting communities to take action on campuses around the world for the second annual Green Apple Day of Service, September 28, 2013.  On this day, they are encouraging K-12 and college/university students, teachers, and administrators to plan a school sustainability project,and work with community volunteers to create positive environmental change.  USGBC-Illinois is also inviting professional members of the green building community to serve as volunteer mentors for each project.  Mentors will provide planning support, and work with schools to prepare successful one day or yearlong events. 
 
 

 

PROJECTS & PROCESS
Each participating school will identify a low or no cost project that fulfills an unmet environmental need, and submit an application.  Schools may propose a wide variety of projects- from planting school gardens, to collaborating on clean-ups, to hosting e-waste recycling drives- or they may customize a project to meet local goals. After selecting a project, the school may apply through one of three program paths: 1. Independent Program; 2. Partner Program; or 3. Challenge Program.   USGBC-Illinois will pair participating schools with one or more mentors based on program path selection, project needs, mentor skills, and location. Mentors may apply as individuals, or as an office team.
