Classroom training and hands-on fieldwork with environmental organizations across the U.S.

Green Corps’ Field School for Environmental Organizing is a paid year-long experience that combines classroom training with hands-on fieldwork with organizations across the country running environmental campaigns. Its aim is to identify and nurture future leaders in the various aspects of the environmental movement.

Participants receive a stipend for the year and have the option to participate in Green Corps’ health benefits program.

Because the program is designed for those about to launch their careers in environmental organizing, most applicants are current seniors or recent graduates, but there is no actual age restriction. Any qualified individual who is able to work in the U.S. for a year is eligible to apply.
