gc-logo

Early Application Deadline: January 31st, 2016

Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges of our day. At Green Corps, they believe there are actually plenty of solutions to these problems, but what is lacking is political will on behalf of decision makers. That’s why right now, what we really need is more Organizers and people who understand the power of public support and know how to mobilize it.

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 like climate change, deforestation, water pollution, factory farming, and many others with groups like Sierra Club and Food & Water Watch. And when you graduate from Green Corps, they’ll help you find a career with one of the national leading environmental and social change groups. Green Corps yearlong program begins in August 2016 with Introductory Classroom Training and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate.

For more information, read on or visit www.greencorps.org/apply

In your year with the 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, former political director and current board president of MoveOn.org, and Bill McKibben, author and founder of 350.org.

Learn new skills: Green Corps will teach you to recruit and train activists and volunteers, build coalitions, organize events and gain media coverage, and much more about all the skills it takes to build public support for our environment.

Gain experience across the country: Green Corps sends organizers to jumpstart campaigns for groups such as Food & Water Watch, Corporate Accountability International, and The Wilderness Society, in major cities to small towns across the country.

Make an impact on today’s environmental challenges: A team of Green Corps organizers helped run a publicity campaign that persuade Kellogg’s Cereal to pressure its supplier of palm oil to stop destroying tropical forests. Other Green Corps organizers have played critical roles in the retirement of over a dozen coal-fired power plants in the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign.

Get paid!: Green Corps organizers earn a salary of $25,500. They also offer a generous benefits package.

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.
