Additionally, Green Iowa AmeriCorps conducts educational meetings at schools and other organizations, which are also free of cost. At these meetings, they teach weatherization training, recycling and waste reduction and energy and water conservation.

Green Iowa AmeriCorps was founded in 2009 and has locations in Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Decorah.
