Lance Gross could hardly be described as green since, by now, he's a seasoned actor. But he is contributing to the green movement with his work on the Toyota Green Initiative for historically black colleges and universities. 

Gross will serve as a mentor to students and as one of the judges of the Toyota Green Initiative Contest.

The TGI encourages students to turn their HBCUs green with a contest that will allow a student to win a one-year lease on a 2011 Toyota Prius. Students must take the Promise Drive at their school and then upload their plan with documentation of their project to make their school more green.

Toyota officials will travel to 13 HBCUs to provide onsite information about sustainability and how students can help the environment.

Here's a list of upcoming TGI events:
