Abstract: This project was aimed to provide workshop session recordings on green volunteering activities of students in one disadvantaged area under the bridge of zone 1, Pracha-Utit Road 76, Toong-kru District, Bangkok where the majority worked as itinerant junk buyers. Therefore, the students held workshop sessions with the aim to provide training on how to repair electrical appliances and engines so that the community members could use this knowledge to increase the value of the unwanted electrical appliances they bought. The project also discussed the risk and danger of certain junk product which might be mixed with rubbish and taught how to classify recyclable products to increase the value of the junk. This project was the first of its own and it was done as green volunteering activities of students. The research team has provided 182 families from the community under the bridge of zone 1 with a number of workshop sessions. The sampling group was chosen out of those who attended at least three times and there were 20 persons. The research results showed that the sampling group achieved high level of knowledge (100.0%). They could fix fans as well as repair and maintain engines. They could classify junk. They expressed high level of satisfaction towards the workshop sessions (mean score of 4.18 with S.D. of 0.27). When the assessment was conducted as regards the operation and the recordings on green volunteering activities of 13 students, it was at the highest level (mean score of 4.68 with S.D. of 0.42). This workshop project was the first runner-up of the national SCB Challenge 2012 Community Project as organized by Siam Commercial Bank PLC.
