Greening Berkeley inspires student involvement in the environment through hands-on, outdoor volunteer opportunities. In collaboration with five local citizens’ groups, Cal Corps Public Service Center supports community based projects that create and restore people-friendly, biodiverse green spaces in Berkeley neighborhoods.
Volunteering through Greening Berkeley provides an enriching opportunity to explore environmental issues beyond the Cal campus.

|The Green Initiative Fund|
The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) provides funding for projects that reduce the UC Berkeley's negative impact on the environment and make UC Berkeley more sustainable. TGIF allocates funds to projects that promote sustainable modes of transportation, increase energy efficiency, and reduce the amount of waste created by UC Berkeley. Portions of the fund also support education & behavior change initiatives, student aid (via return to aid), and student internships. Students, faculty, and staff may submit project proposals, which will be selected for funding by an annually appointed grant-making committee, consisting of students, faculty, and staff, on which the students have the majority vote.
