About Green-U

Green-U.org (launching soon) will help contribute to the environmental sustainability of college/university campuses and communities, while also increasing environmental awareness, literacy, and activism. Our platform has six main components:

  • Resources:

We will provide extensive resources, how-to guides, and marketing assets to help people plan and improve sustainability programs, including waste reduction, composting, water use, food, landscaping, energy use, procurement, healthy buildings, solar, and transportation. While such resources exist today, they are difficult to find, scattered across multiple websites, and often available only to those who have paid for access.

  • Community:

Our online community at each college/university will help all stakeholders-including student organizations, individual students, faculty members, staff, and administrators-coalesce and organize to envision, plan, promote, and implement these programs. It will also connect people interested in the same topics at different schools.

  • Polls:

Polls will gather information on environmental practices at individual schools nationwide.

  • Petition:

Our online petition will allow members of each college/university to lend their voices to advocate for their school’s adoption of environmentally-sustainable policies.

  • Beyond-Campus:

We will also advance the movement towards sustainability by providing news and ways to get involved beyond the campus.

  • Gamification:

We use social rewards to encourage invitations and participation.

About ChangingThePresent.org

The New York Times called us an "amazon.com of the nonprofit world" for our work in helping 400 leading nonprofits capture money normally spent on traditional presents. Now, we are about to launch Green-U to transform thousands of college and university campuses.

This is a great place to work. We have had interns and volunteers from all over the United States and more than forty countries. The atmosphere is energetic, creative, and fun. We value brainstorming, initiative, sharing, and collaborating. Think of it is a laboratory, studio, seminar, or incubator. We are also casual. We are interested in your brains, creativity and heart, rather than your attire. Want to work in jeans, t-shirt and flip-flops? That’s fine with us.

Who, Where, When

  • We are glad to hear from high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as professionals who want to make a meaningful impact with their skills.
  • Work at our office or remotely. We are conveniently located at 7th Avenue and 33 Street, across from Penn Station in Manhattan.
  • Full-time or part-time, school-year or summer, day or evening, weekday or weekend. We are glad to have your help whenever and wherever you are available.
  • We provide a great opportunity to make a meaningful change in the world, but this is an unpaid position.
