A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities (1st program):

Established in 2013, Georgia State University Housing Green Team is the only on-campus organization dedicated towards the preservation of our surrounding environment, encouraging green practices throughout our residence halls and our planet overall. Their goal is to impact GSU’s campus not by the size of their organization but by the changes that they make. They aim to do more than just recycle and conserve energy, but rather to inform fellow students on the importance of such things and the impact that they can have! As an Urban Research University in the state of Georgia, and a significant staple in the Atlanta community we hope to unite students, faculty, and other members in order to shape their environment and increase the overall standard, health, and living of their surroundings. Bleed Blue, Live Green!

After confirming and available the accepted applicants are then interviewed by the e-board. A final decision is then made to confirm the new the new executive board members
