Providing service-learning opportunities that bring communities together to engage, empower and educate on the health, economic, and environmetal benefits of resource conservation and the clean energy economy.

Description

Retrofit A Million directly supports and catalyzes the power of campus-based and community-based organizations with project planning support, energy and water saving products and seed funding to develop service-learning opportunities in their communities.

The Community Retrofit Day of Action (RDA) is Retrofit's signature community engagement, advocacy, and leader activation program. During this service-learning opportunity "harvest teams" canvass an assigned communities to deliver direct-to-door efficiency investment packages while performing a water-kit and lighting retrofits. Exchanging old "dirty" inefficient devices for brand new efficient "clean" bulbs and water kit FREE OF CHARGE to the residents. In addition, the harvest teams conducts a baseline energy assessments and invite recipients to complete an impact profile and environmental awareness survey. Following a 90-day adjustment period, volunteers reconnect with recipients, via telephone, to determine monetary savings and to provide additional green solutions supplied by the Retrofit Fund and partners. This follow-up also allows for Retrofit A Million staff to ensure the integrity of the efficiency investment packages and further increase awareness of other energy and water conservation options.
