SPE-GCS YP - Volunteer at 2015 Chevron Houston Marathon



Please join the Young Professionals group as we volunteer at the Houston Marathon EXPO 2015 as part of the Green Crew.

When: Sunday, January 18, 2015, 10:45 AM – 4 PM

Where: George R. Brown Convention Center


Green Crew Volunteers:

During the EXPO, Green Crew volunteers roam the area, educating the public on what can be recycled and how to divert trash from landfills. Volunteers will also assist EXPO vendors with any trash needs, sorting and disposing of it in the proper receptacle. Key roles are to help educate runners, spectators, and fellow volunteers on what receptacle to place their trash in (recycle or compost).  Volunteers may also assist in bagging and transporting waste as needed.

This is an indoor job and requires a fair amount of walking.  Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Volunteers are provided with a Green Crew shirt, vest, extra rolls of liners, and latex gloves. Volunteers are expected to:

- Be professional and courteous at all times;

- Be positive and helpful in all that you do;

- Be flexible and cooperative if your assignment changes.
