This year at Greenbuild, the USGBC Students team will be hosting a “volunteer lounge” as an interactive and comfortable space for Greenbuild volunteers. Throughout your time at Greenbuild, volunteers are encouraged to spend time in the lounge attending programming specifically geared toward students and young professionals, networking with other volunteers and industry professionals, and simply catching your breathe in between volunteer shifts or expo programs. Conveniently located next to the volunteer check-in space, be sure to check out the schedule of events and sign up for programs!
