Intern and Volunteer at Green U

Green Patrols

Green patrols are recruited at the beginning of the school year. Their role is to help the campus operate in a more sustainable manner by 1) performing sustainability visual audits and reporting to their program coordinator; 2) implementing outreach campaigns for Green U and sustainable vendors.

- Being a Green Patrol is the perfect way students can make a change on campus by dedicating only 2 hours a week to their volunteering service.
- It is also a good way to partner with a group of eco minded students and create lasting bonds.
