Green Corps – on campus at Tufts

Green Corps will be recruiting on campus on October 17th and 18th.

 

Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the
biggest environmental challenges of our day.

In Green Corps¹ yearlong paid program, you¹ll get intensive training in the skills you need to make a difference in the world. You¹ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems ‹ global warming, deforestation, water pollution, factory farming and many others ‹ with groups like Sierra Club and Food and Water Watch. And when you graduate from Green Corps, we¹ll help you find a career with one of the nation¹s leading environmental and social change groups.

In your year with Green Corps:

Be trained by the best: Green Corps organizers take part in trainings with leading figures in the environmental and social change movements: people like Adam Ruben, Political Director of MoveOn.org, and Bill McKibben, author and founder of 350.org.

Gain experience across the country: Green Corps sends organizers to jumpstart campaigns for groups such as Rainforest Action Network, Power Shift, and Environment America in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and dozens of other places in between.

Make an impact on today¹s environmental challenges: Green Corps organizers have built the campaigns that helped keep the Arctic safe from drilling; led to new laws to support clean, renewable energy; convinced major corporations to stop dumping in our oceans; and much, much more.

Get paid! Green Corps organizers earn a salary of $24,000. Organizers also have a chance to opt into our health care program with a pre-tax monthly salary deferral. We offer paid sick days and holidays, two weeks paid vacation and a student loan repayment program for those who qualify.

Launch your career: Green Corps will help connect you to environmental and progressive groups that are looking for full-time staff to build their organizations and help them create social change and protect our environment.

The application process:
In the next few months, weŒll invite 35 college graduates to join Green Corps in 2014 -2015. We¹re looking for people who are serious about saving the planet, people who have taken initiative on their campus or community, and people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and work for change over the long haul.

If you think you¹re one of those people, visit www.greencorps.org to apply to join the 2014-2015 class of Green Corps¹ Field School for Environmental Organizing.

Green Corps¹ yearlong program begins in August 2014 with Introductory Classroom Training in Boston, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate.
