Guide: USGBC San Diego brings sustainability to non-profits

Published on Written by Posted in Community

Looking for a new way to bring green building education to your community? The USGBC San Diego Chapter’s Green Assistance Program is bringing sustainable design strategies to non-profits in Balboa Park, allowing the organizations to turn building energy and cost savings into new funding streams for community-focused programs. To help the non-profits achieve LEED certification at a low cost, the Green Assistance Program engages volunteer building professionals looking for design experience to achieve a LEED Accredited Professional designation. It’s a win for the design community and the community at large in San Diego!


Through the support of a 2013 Chapters Impact Grant, the USGBC San Diego Chapter created a replication guide for other USGBC chapters and like-minded organizations to pursue similar projects across the country.
