Green Corps was launched by U.S. PIRG in 1992. The mission of Green Corps is to train organizers, provide field support for today’s critical environmental campaigns, and graduate activists who possess the skills, temperament, and commitment to fight and win tomorrow’s environmental battles. Since our founding in 1992, Green Corps has partnered with more than 75 environmental organizations, provided critical field support to 100 campaigns, and secured dozens of significant victories in conservation, corporate accountability, and public health. Over the last fifteen years, Green Corps has graduated 200 emerging environmental leaders from our yearlong Environmental Leadership Training Program, with eighty-five percent of our graduates continuing their careers in the environmental and social change field. Today, our graduates work as field directors, campaigners, advocates and grassroots organizers with leading regional and national groups such as National Wildlife Federation, Friends of the Earth, Natural Resources Defense Council, Defenders of Wildlife, Clean Water Action, Environment America, Sierra Club and Greenpeace.
We are looking for people who are serious about saving the planet, have a desire to strengthen and grow the environmental movement, and have demonstrated leadership experience.
