Paid Training in Environmental Organizing/Advocacy

Green Corps is a one-year program that prepares recent college graduates for a career in environmental organizing by providing hands-on experience running campaigns in the field, and helping to connect them with jobs in the social change movement afterward. In Green Corps’ yearlong paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you 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, factory farming and many others — with groups like Sierra Club and Food & 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.  The next application deadline is October 10th, 2014.
