In 2020, Illinois Green launched our Sustainable Facilities Mentor program! This program is for members and volunteers who would like to gain skills in sustainable operations, and use that knowledge to help buildings in their community meet sustainability goals.

The Sustainable Facilities Mentor program includes eight training workshops, covering topics from water, waste, and air quality walkthroughs to discussing sustainable operations strategies. Following training completion, mentors will support a building in the community to meet their goals.

Check out our volunteer description for a Sustainable Facilities Mentor here. If you are interested in applying to be a Sustainable Facilities Mentor, see the application here.

Our first cohort of SFM volunteers completed training virtually in August 2020! Learn more about these volunteers here.
