Are you ready to step up and go big in 2019?
Apply Now to be part of the
2019 Green Team Accelerator Lab!
If you're ready to start and grow a Green Team in your community in 2019, you're in the right place!

Would you love for your community to get together...
- Neighborhood
- Workplace
- Faith Community
- School
- Youth Group
...you name it!

What if you could get a full year of support from experts and from a community of your peers?

With that, would you be able to make a bigger impact faster... even if you're busy and even if you don't have prior experience?

We think so!

And that's why we designed the 2019 Denver Green Team Accelerator Lab...

The Accelerator Lab is a year-long incubator with support and expert training. The Lab includes tours and in-person meetings in Metro Denver as well as an online community.

The Lab will be facilitated by Joan Gregerson of the Green Team Academy, with guidance and support from our supporters and partners:
- Denver Sustainable Neighborhoods
- Lakewood Sustainable Neighborhoods
- Interfaith Power and Light
- People and Pollinators Action Network
- Certifiably Green Denver

This is a no-cost program for you.

Be part of an exciting experiment! Our goal is to demonstrate how bringing people (like you!) together with expert guidance will help teams make a big impact fast, saving time and energy in the process.

We believe in you!

If you are able to attend in-person meetings in Denver, you are welcome to apply!
(Not limited to Denver residents.) Tell us where you'd like to meet!

Recommended Participation: Two members per team

Step 3: Participate in the Accelerator Lab
The goal of the Accelerator Lab is to help people like you to launch and grow thriving Green Teams in their communities. We want you to be able to bring about a societal transformation, so that sustainability is on everyone's mind and in every part of our lives.

We would love to mentor 10 or more teams, ideally with two members from each team! If your team is accepted to the Accelerator Lab, you will be meeting throughout the year with your peers, from January - November 2019.

If you applied to participate as a mentor, you can attend some or all meetings and participate in the online community.

Your facilitator will guide you through trainings, providing tools and exercises to help you visualize, plan and take action. But even more important, by building a supportive community, we will all learn from each other, stay inspired and fast-track your team's impact!

There will be many opportunities for you to share your story! By telling about your struggles, challenges and results, you will inspire others to follow your lead.

Opportunities to share your story include:

- Featured on Green Team Academy podcast
- Interview or write-up in Green Team Academy training or marketing materials
- Featured on other websites and media

...and maybe, you will want to help mentor the following year's group of eco-leaders!

After years of struggling to make positive changes for the environment in my community, I've figured out what works and what doesn't work.

Mistakes? I've made them all. And I see most teams repeating these same mistakes again and again.

The sad thing is that the world needs us to be act quickly! We can't afford to waste our precious time and energy.

I know that you're busy.

I started the Green Team Academy to mentor people like you that want to make a huge impact in your community quickly, who don't have a lot of time and may not have experience in leadership or community organizing.

The truth is... anyone can step up and lead a team in their community. It's natural for us to care about the very planet that sustains us. In this Accelerator Lab, you'll experience exactly how to do it.

This is an exciting opportunity to make your dream of community transformation come true!

Scroll up and enter your name and email. And I can't wait to hear your ideas for your community,
Joan
