What are students saying about GreenLight?

“My time with GreenLight has truly been one of the highlights of my college career. I joined during my Sophomore year hoping to gain some professional skills that would help me in the business world, and I got so much more than that! Literally every role I’ve had within GreenLight has helped prepare me for life after graduation.”
Chloe Robertson, Internal Development Intern 2019

“I was blown away by the order and depth of the organization. This is not simply a student club. This is a highly-organized, hierarchical team that enables students to gain real-world applicable experience. GLS has enhanced my collegiate experience and expanded my knowledge of sustainability outside the classroom.”

Josh Verdugo, ASU Chapter President 2020

“GreenLight has been such a value add to my college experience—even as a junior. This is my first semester in the organization, and my project team and interactions with leadership have been stellar. I’ve been looking for ways to get involved with ‘green’ organizations on campus as a business sustainability major, and GreenLight has hands down been what I’ve been looking for.”

Michael Nelson, Valley Metro Project Team

“GreenLight is a geat place to interact and make friends, learn working on real life projects, hone your managerial and team work skills while balancing work and study.”

Saylee Koli, Scottsdale Fairmont Princess Project Lead

Student-Led Chapters

Our chapters are formed and led by college students passionate about sustainable business transformation, and they provide opportunities for students to collaborate together to make a difference in their community.

Projects & Student Experience

Our Student-Led Projects are where the rubber hits the road for our impact in the business community. Project Teams consist of 3-6 students, including a Project Lead. Students commit to an average of 5 hours/week for their projects.

Students follow our GreenLight GuideLines 6-phase project process, which takes projects from ideation through implementation. Our custom curriculum includes Solutioneer training, Project Lead training, helpful resources, and more.

Leadership Team (LT) members coordinate Student-Led Projects, on-campus operations, chapter recruitment, professional development opportunities, Solutioneer Showcase events, and team bonding activities. LT members are voted in by their peers and serve the greater good of their chapter.

At the end of each term, students present their projects at our bi-annual Solutioneer Showcase event, which brings together students, business leaders, and community members to network together, enjoy food, and celebrate our shared success.

Student Support

GreenLight Solutions Foundation staff facilitate weekly project support and mentorship for project and individual success. Learning outcomes are centered around sustainability project management best practices and career readiness.

Project Mentors and Faculty Advisors support student chapters to ensure projects provide quality outcomes and students develop professionals skills.
