Green Teams

Green teams are groups of 3 or more people from a House of Worship who provide cooperative leadership to educate, connect, and advocate for healthier communities. 

Green Teams meet regularly to connect your faith community’s spiritual practices and traditions with solutions for climate change and other environmental justice issues. Green Teams educate their members, motivate their faith community to incorporate environmental consciousness into all activities, and celebrate accomplishments.

 

Faith in Place Outreach Staff work alongside the Green Team to put our programs into action. Faith in Place will provide you a Green Team Coach upon declaring yourself a Green Team. This coach will serve as a mentor to your group, and will keep you updated with programs and opportunities for Earth care in your area. They will reach out at least twice a month and attend your meetings and events as their availability allows. Coaches can help you create goals, and connect you to resources, all at no financial cost.

Statewide Outreach Director, Veronica Kyle, shares about the power of Green Teams for environmental care.
