Our vision at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is that buildings and communities will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation. Our mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. Through our community network, continuous collaboration with industry experts, market research publications, and LEED professional credentials, our global staff are working every day to help advance spaces that are brighter and healthier for us to live, work and play in. usgbc.org/students

There are many ways to get involved with the USGBC this year!

Volunteer for Greenbuild

This year Greenbuild will be held in Boston, November 8-10, 2017 and will be teaming up with the local design conference, ABX. Greenbuild couldn’t be as successful as it is without the efforts of the USGBC Volunteers who give their time and energy toward organizing and staffing the event, and they are looking for students to help out. For taking a shift as a volunteer, individuals receive a free full-conference registration—it’s a great deal! Think you’re up for volunteering? Register today.
