Chicago Wants You for a Greener NFL Draft Town


NFL Draft volunteers
Volunteer by Saturday, April 9 if you want to help make the NFL Draft in Chicago an environmentally friendly event.


The NFL Draft (April 28-30) is coming back to Chicago this year and the Chicago Sports Commission is looking for qualified volunteers to support the Green Team! The Green Team will be responsible for ensuring fans are recycling and composting the proper materials so that we are ultimately putting together an extremely environmentally conscious event.


The host city is looking for volunteers to keep the big event green! The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center is already helping the team. Our Zero Waste Program experts will be assisting with waste reduction strategies in Draft Town which includes Grant Park and Congress Plaza.


Please apply HERE by Saturday, April 9 if you are interested in volunteering. The Sports Commission will communicate with all accepted volunteers on how to register for specific shifts by Monday, March 11th. Volunteers will be expected to attend an Orientation/Training session on Monday, April 25th with more details to be provided after accepted volunteers have officially registered for shifts.


Volunteers should love customer service and supporting fans’ needs, they should also love football! Please forward this message to anyone you know who might also be interested. The Sports Commission is looking forward to hearing from you!


Please email with any questions!
