Environmental Organizing Fellowship, Green Corps (USA)

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

The planet needs all the help it can get, especially now with so many environmental protections under attack. To win now and build a strong foundation for lasting progress, we need people who know how to organize: to run organizations and campaigns that will inspire the support and action we need to save our planet. Our year-long program gives you intensive classroom training with people like Bill McKibben, Jane Kleeb, and Phil Radford. Then, you move to hands-on experience working with groups like Corporate Accountability International, The Wilderness Society and Mighty Earth to fight climate change, protect public lands, and reform our food system. When you graduate, we help you join our nearly 400 alumni in a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups. We’re accepting the top 20-30 candidates out of more than 1,000 applicants for our 2018-2019 program. If you’re passionate about the environment and ready to learn the craft of organizing, apply today!

Green Corps’ year-long program begins in August 2018 with Introductory Classroom Training in Denver, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate. For more information, click here.
