Apply for the 2017Sustainable Community Stewards Volunteer Training!

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Be the change you want to see in your community! Join the Sustainable Community Steward volunteers in teaching good environmental stewardship practices to county residents while at the same time learning and having fun working with other like-minded volunteers.

This 34 hour training is structured to give you an introduction into the many different facets of sustainability, and opportunities to practice approaching these behavior changes with the public. Whether you’re interested in water pollution, recycling, or climate change, this training will have something for you.

Over the past five years, Sustainable Community Stewards have diverted over 15,000 pounds of food waste from the landfill, tested over 900 cars for leaks, and taught over 500 people how to make their own non-toxic tub scrub. You can be a positive change maker, educator, and researcher in your own neighborhood by joining this program!

Through this training you'll learn from expert presenters on sustainability, and learn how to change behaviors for the better! Your opportunity to share the knowledge you gained will come after the training. We bring green cleaning recipes and samples to local food banks, provide waste education in food courts at festivals and conferences, and test cars for oil leaks at parks and businesses. We also need volunteers to help manage our Facebook page, write newsletter articles, and more! There's something for everyone!

The training will be held at McCollum Park in South Everett on Wednesdays, from 6 p.m.-9:15 p.m. September 20th-November 8th. The $35 fee will cover your materials and speakers fee. Waivers are available.
