Green Corps Early Application Deadline September 30th, 2012
 
Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the 
biggest environmental challenges of our day. 

In Green Corpsč year-long paid program, youčll get intensive training in the skills youčll need to make a difference in the world. Youčll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems ‹ global warming, deforestation, water pollution, factory farming and many others ‹ with groups such as Sierra Club and Food and Water Watch. And, when you graduate from Green Corps, wečll help you find a career with one of the nationčs leading environmental and social change groups. 

For more information, read below or visit our web site: www.greencorps.org. 

In your year with Green Corps: 

Youčll get great training with some of the most experienced organizers in the field: Green Corps organizers take part in trainings with leading figures in the environmental and social change movements: people such as Adam Ruben, political director of MoveOn.org, and Bill McKibben, author and founder of "350.org". 

Youčll get amazing experience working on environmental issues across the country: Green Corps sends organizers to jumpstart campaigns for groups such as Rainforest Action Network and Environment America in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and dozens of other places in between. 

Youčll have a real impact on some of the biggest environmental problems wečre facing today: Green Corps organizers have built the campaigns that helped keep the Arctic safe from drilling, that led to new laws that support clean, renewable energy, that convinced major corporations to stop dumping in our oceans and much, much more. 

Youčll even get paid: Green Corps Organizers earn a salary of $23,750. Organizers also have a chance to opt into our health care program with a pre-tax monthly salary deferral. We offer paid sick days and holidays, two weeks paid vacation and a student loan repayment program for those who qualify. 

And when you graduate from the program, youčll be ready for what comes next: 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. 

In the next few months, weŒll invite 35 college graduates to join Green Corps in 2013 -2014. Wečre 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 youčre one of those people, visit www.greencorps.org to apply to join the 2013-2014 class of Green Corpsč Field School for Environmental Organizing. 

Green Corpsč year-long program begins in August 2013 with Introductory Classroom Training in Boston, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate.
