Last year, Green Schools Committees volunteered 168,000 hrs & USGBC Students volunteered 40,000 hrs. THANK YOU!

It's Volunteer Appreciation Week at USGBC, when we recognize the wonderful volunteers who have made invaluable contributions to the green building movement. In 2012 alone, over 530,000 volunteer hours were given across the USGBC community by a diverse group of people who, like you, are dedicated to green buildings and communities for all within a generation. This includes nearly 280,000 hours of local volunteer service offered by 5,600 volunteers through the USGBC chapter network. It also includes over 500 people engaged nationally as volunteers for GBCI and almost 700 volunteers advancing USGBC’s mission through advocacy campaigns. Green schools advocates contributed over 168,000 hours through our Green Schools Committees, and USGBC Students tallied more than 40,000 volunteer hours. In total, USGBC volunteers contributed close to $12 million in volunteer time last year.
