GT Earth Day GT Earth Day

Volunteer registration for the Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 17, 2015 is now closed. More than 150 volunteers have signed up!

Volunteer Check-In Location:

Volunteer check-in is at the southwest corner of Tech Green, near the Campanile (look for the large canopy tent). Once you have checked in, you will be directed to your volunteer activity. Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to allow time for check-in and to walk to your volunteer location.

The Earth Day Celebration will take place rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the volunteer check-in location will stay the same, but volunteer activities will be moved indoors.


Volunteer Activity Descriptions

Activity What Will I Be Doing?
Deconstructed Maze Assist at one of four green trivia stations. As Earth Day participants complete each station, they will collect stamps that they can trade for an Earth Day T-shirt.
Green Challenges
The Green Challenges are interactive stations that people can participate in. Help make sure the activities run smoothly.
Mascot Assistant Help our mascots (Captain Planet, Reynard the Fox and Bag Monster) with the things they need during the event, such as getting water and lunch.
Earth Day Set Up Help set up tables and chairs for our 70 exhibitors, and put up directional signs.
Information Booth Answer questions and give visitors information to find their way around the Earth Day Celebration. You will have the resources you need such as a map and a list of events, locations and times.
Popcorn Make popcorn (instructions will be provided) and give out free organic popcorn to Earth Day participants.
Stage Assistant Help out with stage logistics, such as audio and stage set up for the bands, pick up lunches for the performers, and run other errands, as needed, for the stage manager.
Booth Assistant Assist exhibitors as they arrive and set up. Help exhibitors carry display items to their assigned tables.
Clothing Swap Help out at the clothing swap with folding and hanging clothes.
Electronics Recycling Assist people who are dropping off old electronics. Help to unload and sort donations, separate cables from computers, and stack CPUs.
Office Supply Exchange Anyone with a BuzzCard is welcome to come into the office supply exchange area and take as many office supplies as they would like, for free. You will help set up the available office supplies neatly on the tables and check to make sure people who come in have their BuzzCard.
Shoot the Shoes "Shoot the Shoes" is a fun way to recycle old athletic shoes. People donate their shoes and can shoot them through a basketball hoop that will be set up at the event. Volunteers will assist people who are donating shoes, cheer them on as they "shoot the shoes", and keep a count of the donated shoes.
T-Shirt Distribution Give out free T-shirts to people who have collected all four stamps in the Earth Day Deconstructed Maze.
No Preference At the Earth Day Celebration, there are always activities that need extra volunteers. If you are willing to help out wherever you are needed most, choose the "No Preference" option.
