2017-2018 Louisiana Green Schools Challenge Mentor Registration

 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 Louisiana Green Schools Challenge!

The U.S. Green Building Council - Louisiana Chapter (USGBC Louisiana) is challenging teachers and students across the state to green their schools. By exposing children and young adults to issues of sustainability now, we can help raise a generation of environmentally-conscious adults.

We are looking for motivated volunteers to lend their expertise. With your real-world knowledge, you can assist these schools in lowering their operating costs, improve their indoor learning spaces, and impact the lives of students, teachers and your community forever. Help us to empower our youngest stakeholders to be good stewards of their environments.

See "Mentor Participation Information” at our Green Schools Challenge webpage for more information about Mentoring
