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.

"Green Corps challenged me to take on Big Coal and gave me the training I needed to win a real victory. It was an incredible experience that has inspired me to continue organizing for social change."

Yong Jung Cho, Class of 2013
350.org, Fossil Free Organizer

"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.”

The late David Brower,
Former Chair of Earth Island Institute
