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

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.

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

In your year with 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 Phil Radford, former Executive Director of Greenpeace USA, 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—all of 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, the Sierra Club, and Conservation Lands Foundation 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 persuaded 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 on the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign.

Get paid! Green Corps organizers earn a salary of $26,000. Eligible staff will receive:

 

·         Paid holidays and sick days

·         Opportunity to enroll in group healthcare plan after 90 days (employee contribution toward healthcare varies by state).

·         After 3 months, opportunity to apply for our college loan assistance program.

·         10 days of paid vacation.

We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.


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.

The application process:
In the next few months, we‘ll invite a select group of individuals to join Green Corps in 2017 – 2018. We’re looking for people who are serious about saving the planet, people who have taken initiative on their campus or community, and people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and work for change over the long haul.

If you think you’re one of those people, visit www.greencorps.org/apply to apply.


Green Corps’ yearlong program begins in August 2017 with Introductory Classroom Training and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate.
