We’re the country’s most respected training program for environmental organizers.

After more than 30 years of training environmental activists in our one-year organizer training program, we are launching a new program in 2024: Green Corps Campaigns.

In addition to our year-long paid training program, Green Corps also has short term 4-month campaign opportunities to make an impact on critical environmental efforts. Here’s how it works:


To make an impact, you need training. Campaign positions will start with one week of intensive classroom training with experienced staff and trainers covering topics including volunteer recruitment, campaign planning, public speaking and much more. Next, you will work on a campaign for one of the most pressing environmental issues of the day — from saving our last wild places, to protecting our oceans, to reducing climate change pollution.

Campaigns will last approximately 4-months and there will be multiple start dates throughout 2024. After campaigns, we will help top candidates pursue opportunities for advancement within Green Corps and the broader social change movement.

Here is an example of a campaign timeline:

  • One week introductory training
  • Travel to campaign location
  • Launch campaign and recruit volunteers
  • Recruit volunteers
  • Execute primary campaign tactics
  • Train volunteer leaders
  • Discuss future professional opportunities
  • Culminating campaign events
  • Campaign wrap-up



This position is approximately 4 months. Pay and benefits are prorated for the length of your campaign position, based on this target annual package: The target annual compensation for this position is $31,500 (but compensation may range between $31,500 and $39,000 depending on location and start date). Our benefits package for short-term staff includes medical insurance for employees and dependents after 90 days on staff, paid sick time (60-72 hours/year depending on location, prorated for the length of your campaign position), and our commuter benefit program. We also offer excellent training and opportunities for advancement.

Green Corps Campaigners go where the environment needs them and wherever they can make the biggest impact. They could work on campaigns almost anywhere in the country, and while location preferences are considered for placements, we require all campaigners to be geographically flexible.
