 Past Service Projects

Weatherization with Energy Care

December Energy Care

For the past several years, Emerging Professionals have spent a Saturday in December weatherizing with EnergyCare. This St. Louis area non profit works to protect low-income, homebound people—especially the elderly, and seriously ill or physically disabled adults and children—from illness, hospitalization or death from summer heat or winter cold. Weatherization improves comfort, and reduces energy consumption, and the associated energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Three cheers to our Emerging Professionals for their hard work!

Material Reuse Station at EarthDance Farms

img_3572On Saturday August 13, 2016 USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Emerging Professionals gathered at EarthDance Organic Farm School. Our EPs had worked throughout the summer to design a materials reuse station for the farm and that morning they got to work constructing it!

The farm had an abundance of materials that could be reused, but prior to the service day they were jumbled and unorganized. After a day of hard work, the Emerging Professionals left the farm with a station to sort and protect resources for future use. Three cheers for their ingenuity, hard work and service!

 Little Free Libraries for Ford Elementary


In 2015, USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Emerging Professionals spent Green Apple Day of Service at Perennial constructing 3 Little Free Libraries out of reclaimed materials.

The Libraries were headed to the hallways of Ford Elementary, a St. Louis Public school in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood. Emerging Professionals then collecting children’s books to stock these libraries.
