Do you want to help local residents conserve energy? On Oct. 8, all ages can volunteer with the Meadows Park Community Center and local college and high school students to interact with Colorado Springs residents face-to-face. You?ll be helping to switch incandescent porch bulbs with CFLs for free, connecting income-qualifying households with free weatherization services, and providing information to all residents about energy-reducing programs, rebates and practices. Volunteers receive a thorough 45-minute training. Groundwork Colorado's funding for this Colorado Student Energy Awareness and Outreach Project is provided by a American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant awarded by the U. S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration and sponsored by the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, the Colorado Workforce Development Council, and the Colorado State Energy Partnership Coalition. To RSVP, contact Tilah Larson at 719-385-6532 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 30, 2011.
