Block Captains

 

Block Captains are our neighborhood leaders; they are crucial in engaging their community on a grassroots level, in a way that SOUL can’t. At our Block Captain training, you will learn about the types of trees we offer, how and where we plant, and about the permitting process. We will discuss your vision for your neighborhood and help create a “tree palette” and strategy.

The primary responsibility of a Block Captain is collecting signed permits from homeowners who want trees and returning them to SOUL. They will also assist the homeowner in picking out the appropriate tree and help SOUL in creating a “tree palette” and strategy for their neighborhood. If you want us to move into your neighborhood, we highly encourage you to attend this training.
