USGBC Students: Equipping Generation Green

Commitment by

U.S. Green Building Council

In 2010, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) committed to launching the USGBC Students Program to help students green their campus, community, and careers. Capitalizing on its current network of 70 USGBC student groups, USGBC will create a formal Students Program to provide students the infrastructure for sharing information, networking, and accessing green professional opportunities upon graduation. USGBC will create a resource toolkit to support green campus initiatives while sharpening the talents of student leaders. USGBC will also host train-the-trainer events for students committed to empowering their peers to make sustainability and green building a part of their legacy and future careers. Finally, USGBC will connect students to green building professionals on campus and in their communities through hands-on learning experiences and mentoring opportunities.
