Green Event Volunteers: KC Convention Center

Flexible Dates: Wed, June 20 – Sun, June 24

Green Event Volunteer

Kansas City Convention Center

301 W 13th Street

Kansas City, MO 64105

Volunteer alongside Bridging The Gap staff to help make the Unitarian Universalist Convention a Green Event!  Special events, like concerts and conventions, generate on average one pound of waste per person per event day! Integrating Green Event processes allows virtually all of the waste to be reused, recycled or composted!

This is a terrific opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about what happens behind-the-scenes to effectively manage a Green Event! (This is not a front-of-house public interfacing role). Working on the back dock, we will ensure the recycling, composting and trash are properly sorted, weigh all materials, record the data and then place all recyclables into their proper dumpster for removal. Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Bonus: All volunteers will receive a reusable branded “Bridging The Gap” shopping bag and a KIND granola bar, courtesy of Cargill Cares!

The convention takes place Wednesday, June 20 through Sunday, June 24; choose a date that works for you (you do not need to volunteer all five days).

Shifts: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM or 1:00 – 4:00 PM


Min age: 18.
