Volunteer with University Sustainability

University Sustainability provides volunteer opportunities for Mason faculty, staff, students, and alumni as well as community members. Grow food, harvest and distribute produce, plant trees, participate in zero waste clean-ups, complete waste audits, support large-scale events, and more! Some virtual opportunities are also available.

Full-time classified staff and admin/professional faculty may use School Assistance and Volunteer Service (SAVS) Leave; students can earn service hours toward eligible academic courses.
