GreenHouse is offered as a for-credit course!
That means you can either apply to take the program as an extra-curricular activity, or as a course that will be part of your transcript. The application process is the same.

Students will also engage in work to help them identify their own values and goals for creating change, develop teamwork and collaboration skills, and begin envisioning their own social venture or change initiative.
