Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We provide educational tours and events that demonstrate the sustainable economy in action, inspire support of local green businesses, and empower people to incorporate environmental responsibility and social justice into their personal and professional lives.
Bay Area Green Tours (BAGT) serves as a conduit to solutions for a more sustainable future. BAGT is committed to focusing on positive, innovative solutions and models as a way to enable people to see new possibilities that support a more sustainable future. In particular we find it especially rewarding to connect young people to role models that might inspire them towards environmental activism and career paths. Our tour participants experience real life panoramas of innovative green-certified businesses, people and organizations in the nation’s environmental epicenter with the goal of inspiring them to find resources or take action to help mitigate climate change.
Our tours are a combination educational seminar/engaging field trip for students of all ages. Interns and volunteers meet real world solutionaries, where right livelihood and triple bottom line practices (people, planet, profits) intersect with sustainable innovation and successful business. Candidates should be passionate about localism & sustainability, and dedicated to assisting us in furthering our mission.
We work out of The David Brower Center, a leed platinum building housing world class environmental groups, half a block from BART in beautiful downtown Berkeley, CA, AND also at Oakland Impact HUB, a hive of social justice and entrepreneurship and environmental activists located four blocks from 19th Street Station, Oakland. This is where we also like to begin most of our tours.

Networking opportunities to local solutionaries

Experience researching and connecting with innovative and pioneering leaders in sustainability
Improved research and communication skills
