Get the training and experience you need to kickstart your career
Our program includes intensive classroom training with prominent guest trainers like Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, and Sarah Hodgdon, National Program Director at the Sierra Club. Then, you’ll receive hands-on experience working with established groups on urgent campaigns around climate change, clean energy, reforming our food system, and more. You’ll learn how to recruit and train volunteers, develop strategic campaigns, build strong coalitions, organize events, gain media coverage, and more.
Learn to harness the power of organizing
We definitely need lawyers, scientists and other experts to solve our environmental problems. The good news is that we have a lot of them on our side. So what do we need even more of? Organizers—people who understand the power of public support and know how to mobilize it.

"Without Green Corps, I wouldn't have this behind-the-scenes insight into how you win a campaign -- from media to fundraising to political strategy and everything in between. Green Corps gave me the foundation that I needed to go on to lead an organization like Greenpeace."
Phil Radford, Class of 1999
Former Executive Director, Greenpeace USA
"The Earth, which is taking a beating at human hands, is awash with people who express concern about it, but there is a drought of people able to organize to stop the abuse. Green Corps prepares university graduates for the essential commitment to end the drought.”
