Volunteers are key to growing not only our organization but also to market, promote, educate, and collaborate on programs and projects to transform Tallahassee into a model community in sustainability. To volunteer or to learn more about volunteering opportunities with Sustainable Tallahassee, please contact us at Volunteer@SustainableTallahassee.org. In the meantime, we need your help at several key upcoming events - we hope you'll volunteer!
Upcoming VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
April 22 Tallahassee PrideFest: Pride in the Plaza: Sustainable Tallahassee is a proud partner of Tallahassee Pridefest in "greening" their Pride in the Plaza event, and we need green volunteers in order to make this effort successful. Volunteers who sign up will most likely be assigned Recycling Patrol, which would entail standing near a recycling bin in Kleman Plaza, answering recycling questions from Pridefest attendees, and ensuring only recyclable items enter the bins. Please sign up for a shift, your help goes a long way! Click here to sign up as a volunteer
April 22 Earth Day! Healthy Communities Festival: Sustainable Tallahassee is one of five co-hosts of this year's Earth Day festivities at Cascades Park. We're setting up a tent so we can visit with people and talk about our organization and what we can do to be more sustainable in our lives and in our community. And we're bringing out our Water Bottle Monster to add more fun! More details about this event are HERE. We would love to have you volunteer - come and spend a couple hours with us!
In addition to our monthly Green Drinks program and gathering, we also coordinate several special events such as an annual meeting, awards program and member events or field trips. Our annual fundraiser is a 5K Trash Dash held in the Fall each year. If you like to participate in organizing events, this opportunity is made just for you. Get in touch with us at Volunteer@SustainableTallahassee.org.
We have several active committees where we can put your talents and time to good use to make Sustainable Tallahassee strong and effective in our community. Our committees are involved with energy, transportation, green business, waste reduction, resource protection, local foods, membership development, fundraising - and more. Check out our full list of committees to see what appeals to you and how you can make a difference.
The Sharing Tree
The Sharing Tree is Tallahassee’s first reusable resource center for Leon County Public School teachers! With cooperating efforts from Sustainable Tallahassee, Leon County, Goodwill, and Leon County Schools, the goal is to offer classroom materials completely free of charge to teachers in Leon County Public Schools. The Sharing Tree is also open to the public, and there are frequent workshops where we can learn creative ways to re-use materials. The Sharing Tree began as an initiative of Sustainable Tallahassee's Recycling Committee in 2010, and we're still proud of our partnership. Find out more at www.TheSharingTreeFL.org.
