Volunteer to Make a Difference
Green Leaders are linked to a local Green Center and act as MAEOE's ambassadors and navigators for the Maryland Green Schools program by:
- introducing uncertified schools to the Maryland Green Schools program
- meeting with a school's Green School team as they work towards certification
- volunteering at the annual Youth Summit
- volunteering as a Green Schools Reviewer at the MAEOE Conference
A Green Leader can be a parent, educator, student, naturalist or anyone who is involved, committed and wants to make their community more sustainable. Other responsibilities of a Green Leader may include:
- staying up-to-date with the Green Schools application process and attend training every 1-2 years
- helping review the green schools program application before submitting it to MAEOE
- assisting the establishment of Sustainable Practices (Objective 2 of the Application)
- connecting schools with local experts for support of Sustainable Practices
- working with a school to secure funding for projects
I receive satisfaction that I am able to assist schools in becoming certified Green Schools. I enjoy supporting schools, assisting them to achieve their goals.Donald Belle
