Wondering how you can get more engaged in your local community? Get answers to these questions and more by becoming a WSU Sustainable Community Steward or WSU Waste Warrior. Training begins this Fall!

Both trainings are designed to help you become an informed community educator, preparing you for your volunteer commitment of 20-40 hours. A combination of engaging classroom presentations and discussions paired with l behind-the-scenes field trips make this an excellent educational and community engagement opportunity.
