We all have a passion for education. Where we learn matters. USGBC-Illinois and the Center for Green Schools invites you to participate in the sixth annual Green Apple Day of Service.  This school year, Green Apple is your day, which means you pick the date that works best for you!

There are some exciting changes to Green Apple Day of Service this year, including:

  • You pick the day from September 2017 – April 2018 that works best for you.
  • Support for supplies and equipment for projects with help from corporate partners (this is limited, so register your project early to take advantage of this!).
  • Highly individualized guidance, with reminders based on your project date and all the tools you need to stay on track leading up to your Day of Service.
  • Handy and fun rewards for schools and teachers who check in about their timeline and progress toward their project day.
  • A fully updated resources library, with guidance from staff, partners, project captains, and volunteers.

We encourage USGBC-Illinois members, students, teachers, and administrators to plan a low to no cost school/university wide sustainability project, while utilizing local volunteers to create a positive environmental change. Schools will register their projects on the Green Apple website and share details about what the project entails.

PROJECTS

This year, USGBC-Illinois is encouraging members and volunteers to work with schools in neighborhoods across Chicago.  Projects should focus on implementing a low to no cost carbon drawdown, sustainability solution – sample project ideas coming soon! Schools also have the option to create a custom project that caters more to their community’s specific needs. After a school registers, USGBC-Illinois can assist with optional mentor pairing and volunteer recruiting.
