Green Corps Field School for Environmental Organizing
January

http://www.greencorps.org/page/field-school-environmental-organizing

Green Corps’ Field School for Environmental Organizing trains college graduates to run environmental campaigns, starting by building a core group of activists and finishing by convincing decision-makers to pass laws, change policies and create reforms to protect our environment. But Green Corps is more than a school – it’s a real-world endeavor. Trainees start working on campaigns from the start of their education. They make a difference, starting on Day 1.

Green Corps' one-year, full-time, paid Field School for Environmental Organizing includes intensive classroom training, hands-on field experience running urgent environmental and public health campaigns, and career placement in positions with leading environmental groups.
We ask all candidates where they would like to work. However, we match our organizers with the cities where we think they will make the biggest impact. We cannot guarantee placement in a certain location. Part of the excitement of Green Corps is "going where the fight is," and working in strategically important cities on pressing environmental issues.
