Welcome!

Alondra Martinez 

Alondra is an Environmental Engineering major and the coordinator for the Green Campus Action Plan's volunteer program. If you have any questions or want to express interest in the program, contact her here

The Green Campus Action Plan's volunteer program was created with the intent to have undergraduates on campus at the University of California, Riverside to pursue projects that will help sustain and bring sustainability efforts on campus. 

We encourage all students to join our programs to learn more about how YOU can leave a lasting effort on campus and the Imperial Valley.

The Green Campus Action Plan's volunteer program was created with the intent to have undergraduates on campus at the University of California, Riverside to pursue projects that will help sustain and bring sustainability efforts on campus. 

 

There will be three ways to participate in the GCAP Volunteer Program.

We have the option to be randomly assigned to a volunteering type for students who have no preference.
 

You will take on a leadership role on your own project that will require a green grant.

 

Depending on the amount of work on your project you will be able to have a couple volunteers who do not have a project to help you.


This type of volunteering will require a 30 minute biweekly meeting with the volunteer coordinator to be able to discuss updates on your project or ask questions you might have.

If you are working on your own project and are requesting help from other volunteers you need to commit and finish the project. If you are working on your own project with no help you do not have to commit to the finalization of your project (but finalization is highly encouraged).

GCAP will have small projects by October that they would like to do and volunteers can sign up to take part in the planning process. 


This type of volunteering will make you have 1 hour weekly meetings to sit and plan with your fellow members and execute this project.


This project should take 1 month or less to execute. This type of volunteering has a time commitment of 2 hours per week (1 hour meeting + 1 hour of individual work).

For physical volunteering, you will be emailed to volunteer for any green grant event that GCAP is taking a part of such as the sustainability fair or our new thrift shop.


This project will have you commit to the shift you signed up for.

Volunteer Expectations.

Volunteers are unpaid, so they can work as much/little as they would like. 

Volunteers meet with the volunteer coordinator bi-weekly for an hour.

Every week, volunteers should try to do further research so they can come with their projects a little more developed/have questions to ask during the bi-weekly meeting.

Volunteers can choose to do a project independently or with a group, it is up to them.

Volunteers will be given an introduction to GCAP and the green grant process and will then meet 1-on-1 with Alondra to start brainstorming their project.
