Cost $0.00


We need half a dozen waste warriors to help us train our young eco-stewards about waste awareness and proper lunch waste sorting so we can put a cap on our waste stream. This volunteer opportunity will be a two part session taking place over two days, taking place at a very small school (we work with grades K through 8) in the outskirts of El Cajon with several children from the Kumeyaay tribe in attendance. Please communicate with volunteer coordinator if you would like to discuss carpool options.
