Organizations How can people get involved with your mission? Post
Greening Forward is a youth-driven, youth-imagined environmental organization that empowers 2,000 young environmental changemakers each year. Our organization is volunteer-led by students, ages 18-25, who have a passion for environmental action and student leadership.
While we are unable to pay salaries of our volunteers, we do attempt to match volunteers who work part-time or full-time to hosts who are willing to provide lodging, and Greening Forward's living stipend helps support the volunteers' living expenses for one year. Having a host family allows us to attract quality talent to our volunteer-led organization, because housing becomes one less thing that our staff have to worry about. In exchange, the host family recieves the opportunity to redeem a tax credit, as well as the opportunity to learn and grow from a young changemaker who may be taking a gap year or dually pursuing a graduate and/or undergraduate degree. (Students are matched to hosts based on mutual agreements, and preferences.)
Greening Forward is a national organization, and works virtually, so no matter where you are located, if you have an extra living space that is private and available, please contact Greening Forward's CEO, Charles Orgbon III, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
