University Sustainability provides volunteer opportunities for George Mason University students, faculty, staff, and alums as well as community members.  

Volunteer opportunities are primarily in-person, with some virtual opportunities. Volunteers grow food sustainably, harvest and distribute produce, plant trees, participate in zero waste clean-ups, complete waste audits, support large-scale events, and more! 

You help make Mason more sustainable and gain valuable, hands-on experience when you volunteer with University Sustainability. Students can earn service hours for their courses and employees can participate in university-wide efforts to improve the university’s sustainability.  

All volunteer opportunities are featured on our University Sustainability Volunteer Portal 

You can create a free account, browse the volunteer opportunities, and sign up for as many as you would like! Mason-affiliated folks are encouraged to create an account with their @gmu.edu email address.

University Sustainability can design custom volunteer opportunities for volunteering groups. If your group is interested in a custom opportunity, please email gogreen@gmu.edu with the preferred dates and times to volunteer, the number of anticipated volunteers, and the activities your group would like to do.
