Monthly Forum Volunteer Opportunities

Forum volunteers are the driving force behind each event. Since its inception in 2003, the Monthly Forum program has been organized by our team of volunteers, who invite several speakers to present information on sustainable practices. There are a few ways you can help:


  • Speaker Recruitment: Select and recruit speakers with support from the Forum Planning Committee. Two to three volunteers are needed to organize each forum.
  • Day-of Volunteers: Assist at the event, helping with set-up, break-down, photos, signing in guests and generally making sure each event runs smoothly.
  • Marketing Volunteers: Help spread the word about the events on social media, sustainability event calendars and email lists.


If you have any questions or are interested in getting involved in the Monthly Forums program, contact [email protected]



* In addition to Forums positions, we have a variety of other volunteer opportunities. If you’re interested in becoming a GreenHomeNYC volunteer, please attend one of our new volunteer orientations held on the last Tuesday of each month, and find out how you can contribute.
