• Recycling Ambassador Program
     
    Looking for leadership opportunities? Want to help the environment?  Are you a student at a Baltimore City Public School? Are you interested in helping your school learn about recycling and waste reduction?
     
    If so, you can become a Recycling Ambassador to encourage recycling at your school or another school.  Volunteers can tackle low recycling rates in their own and other schools and become a representative for recycling.
     
    How the Program Works
    Each Ambassador is assigned to a school and will assist with the recycling program, help organize school recycling events, and educate the school and the community and more! Specific responsibilities include:
    • Work with host school to develop and maintain an effective "green" team of students, teachers and staff
    • Assist in developing an action plan to ensure success of the recycling program
    • Collaborate with other Recycling Ambassadors to share best practices
    • Serve as a liaison between the school district and the host school on recycling issues
    • Once the recycling program is well established, coordinate at least one recycling Service Learning project
    • Track and submit personal Service Learning hours
