Mission Zero Volunteer

Be part of the solution. As Sheridan students, you are welcome to join the Mission Zero Volunteer Team.

The Mission Zero (MZ) program was launched by the Office for Sustainability to transform Sheridan into a Zero Waste campus. We need everyone’s support to build a green campus. Our goal is to reduce our waste that is sent to landfill down to zero. We have already achieved some significant improvements in waste diversion in all campuses. To make sure Sheridan will continue to improve, we need to further promote the MZ program to get everyone’s support.

As a Mission Zero Volunteer, you will help inform and educate students, faculty and staff about the MZ program and encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle waste. You will support our initiatives around waste reduction and waste sorting, biodiversity, active transportation, and energy conservation, among others. You will also have the opportunity to support other cool initiatives such as Repair Café Sheridan and waste audits. During the semester, not only will you make some new friends, you will also be able to log down some volunteer hours that will be counted in your Co-curricular Record (CCR). To help you get started, you will be invited to receive training at the beginning of the semester.

Due to COVID-19, volunteering during the Fall semester will move to an online format. There will be a volunteer training session near the beginning of the semester, where you will learn about Mission Zero to help us spread the word about our initiatives remotely. More details to come. 

If you are interested in joining the MZ volunteer team at your campus, please fill out an online volunteer form or contact our office at MissionZero@sheridancollege.ca.
