Green Corps 2012-2013 Field School for Environmental Organizing

Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges of our day. They will be recruiting on-campus at Tufts on October 13 and 14.

In Green Corps’ year-long paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you’ll need to make a difference in the world. You’ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems — global warming, deforestation, water pollution and many others — with groups such as Sierra Club and Food and Water Watch. And, when you graduate from Green Corps, we’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.

For more information, visit www.greencorps.org or contact Aaron Myran, Green Corps Field Recruitment Director, at aaron@greencorps.org or 617-747-4302.
