You can only learn so much in a classroom. GIC provides the perfect opportunity to learn about sustainability by going out in the real world, with real issues and making a real impact.
As a GIC Volunteer, you’ll conduct energy assessments for local businesses in your community to help them find ways to save energy. After you complete our training, you’ll use our self-training tool, called GEMS, to answer simple yes/no questions about the business and how they use energy. As questions are answered, GEMS automatically compiles a report for the business providing recommendations to save energy. On average, the whole thing takes about 20 minutes and identifies 20% in energy savings.
