Together We Can Make A World of Difference!

We are a service of the University of Alberta Students’ Union (SU) that provides peer-to-peer learning and support for all undergraduate students to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of their university experience. This includes providing sustainability-based services to the entire campus community, as well as opportunities to facilitate change on a larger scale.

Volunteer with us!

Join our volunteer team

We are currently looking for Spring and Summer volunteers to join the Campus Gardens and Bike Library & Workshop Teams! Spring/Summer volunteers can volunteer 2 hours/week at the garden working on crop care, watering, garden improvements and/or event preparation or at the Bike Library assisting patrons, maintaining our rental fleet and/or volunteering at workshops!

In each of these spring/summer volunteer roles you will have the opportunity to work with likeminded individuals, learn from experts, contribute to sustainability initiatives, and be a part of a team. Applications for the Campus Gardens and Bike Library & Workshop are now open. The deadline to apply is April 16th at 11:59PM. Apply Now!

Beginning in June 2023, Sustain SU will look for sustainability-driven volunteers to join our Sustainability Ambassadors team and Leadership Team for the upcoming academic year!

Leadership Team members (LTs) are responsible for managing one of Sustain SU's projects and overseeing a group of Sustainability Ambassadors. This is a great role to gain leadership experience, and get to know others interested in sustainability. The hourly investment for LTs is 5 hours per week.

Sustainability Ambassadors (SAs) work collaboratively to brainstorm, plan and execute the events and efforts stemming from these projects. This role allows you to meet new people with a passion for sustainability, work as part of a team, as well as put on great events throughout the year. The hourly investment for SAs is 2-3/hours per week.

Applications for these positions are not open yet! Stay tuned! Thank you for your interest!
