We were recently informed of a wonderful opportunity for all of you current seniors looking for employment after graduating (and maybe some of you juniors, if you’re super ahead of the curve). Environment America is a collective of state-based environmental advocacy groups, and offers fellowship positions each year. The two main features of this program are 1) the chance to get career experience in a chosen issue area (energy, water, preservation), and 2) training in all facets of advocacy work (from grassroots organizing to holding press conferences and lobbying).
One of the current fellows is a recent Tufts grad, Bruce Ratain (’11), who majored in Political Science. Bruce is currently recruiting for fellows, and can be contacted for information and questions here. More information can be found at the Environment America website here.
