Green Team Leader - Special Olympics North Carolina Summer Games


Cause Areas


Mon Feb 12, 2018 - Sun Jun 03, 2018


NCSU Campus + OthersRaleigh, NC 27601


Special Olympics North Carolina presents Summer Games in the Raleigh area every summer. We have over 1900 athletes and coaches + 2000 volunteers and numerous family members join us for the 1st weekend of June for sporting and special events at 11 different venues throughout the weekend. We are looking for some passionate individuals to help us "Green Our Games". We have an initial plan started and need a few folks to take ownership to develop the plan further and execute during the Summer Games. Depending on the teams ideas and capacity we can concentrate on just one venue ideally Talley Student center or we can expand our efforts to other venues.

If you want to make an impact for the environment there are many opportunities for recycling, even composting at NCSU and potential reduction and reuse but we need a champion.

This could be an excellent resume or leadership building opportunity. You would work alongside a staff member who has a Master's in Natural Resource Management and an MBA but cannot devote the appropriate time to this initiative.

The planning would start now with several meetings, time for research, plan refinement, site tour(s) of whichever venue(s) we want to focus on, volunteer recruitment and culminate in volunteering at the actual site during Summer Games. This is flexible in that we can focus on just one site or event or more.
