iSEEK green's Volunteer Opportunities page is part of the Minnesota Green Careers website (www.MnGreenCareers.org). It was developed jointly by iSeek Solutions and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). The website is the state's authoritative source for information on green careers.

The Minnesota Green Careers website (www.MnGreenCareers.org) serves Minnesotans interested in careers which have a direct or essential impact on a product, service, or process resulting in environmental benefits.

If you're a student, job seeker, or career changer, this website can help you research green careers, learn about training options, and find green employers in Minnesota.

Volunteering is great way to learn more about green careers and gain experience.

Why Be a Green Volunteer?
Volunteering is a great way to gain experience. Besides feeling good about what you're doing, green volunteering will help you:

  • Get your foot in the door with an organization that's helping the environment
  • Network with people working in green jobs
  • Develop green-related skills and knowledge
  • See what green jobs are really like
  • Get a competitive edge in the job market when you're ready to find a green job
  • Currently, about one out of every 50 job openings in Minnesota is for a green job. Competition for some of these openings might be stiff, but the skills you learn through volunteering can tip the scale in your favor.
