Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges. In Green Corps’ year-long paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you’ll 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 and many others — with groups such as Sierra Club and Food and Water Watch. And, when you graduate from Green Corps, they’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.
In your year with Green Corps you’ll 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 organizer of the “350.org” rallies for climate action.
You’ll get amazing experience working on environmental issues across the country. Green Corps sends organizers to jumpstart campaigns for groups such as Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Food and Water Watch and Environment America in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and dozens of other places in between.
Green Corps Organizers earn a salary of $23,750 and have a chance to opt into a health care program with a pre-tax monthly salary deferral. Green Corps offer paid sick days and holidays, two weeks paid vacation and a student loan repayment program for those who qualify.
In the next few months, they‘ll invite 35 college graduates to join Green Corps in 2012-2013. A year-long program begins in August 2012 with Introductory Classroom Training in Boston, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the U.S. Candidates must be willing to relocate.
