GM Volunteers

There are 3,500 Eco-Schools in the United States. In 2013 these schools lowered their utility bills by $60 million, developed and/or nurtured many hundreds of schoolyard habitats, planted trees, recycled hundreds of tons of waste, passed tons of unused food to food banks and more.

Importantly, 1.8 million participating students became more environmentally aware and a majority of them were able to develop environmental knowledge and skills that will help them be more effective as people, leaders and resource conservationists in their adult lives.

GM Eco-Green Mentor Opportunities

You will have the opportunity to work with your local school to decide how often you will volunteer and in what capacity. Our goal is to make it as easy and flexible as possible for GM Eco-Green Mentors and schools to collaborate.

Here are a few examples of how GM Eco-Green Mentors can get involved:

  1. Share with students and faculty what you are doing to green your dealership
  2. Share your work and educational experience and help to prepare students for STEAM careers
  3. Become a member of the school's Eco-Action Team that helps implement projects and plans
  4. Help develop an Eco-Schools USA action plan based on school environmental audit results
